Welcome, welcome! gentle Springtime,
Thou that dost with joys abound,
With the flow'rs again returning,
Breathing love to all around.
Throw thy verdant mantle o'er us,
Fill the air with fragrance mild,
Let the hawthorn's blushing blossom
Say that gentle Spring has smil'd.
Bid thy songsters, early flying
Over valley, wood, and plain;
Bid the breezes, softly sighing,
Say thou art at home again.
Bid the gently murm'ring waters
Spread the news where'er they flow,
And the sun, new life imparting,
Make the heart with gladness glow.
