May comes tripping o’er the meadows,
Blossoms crown her brow;
Sunlight drives away the shadows,
Birds are nesting now.

Then hail, hail to thee!
For the birds their songs are trilling;
We greet thee with song,
Filled with joy is each bright day;

Then hail, hail to thee!
For the spring each soul is thrilling;
We greet thee with song,
O golden month of May!

May comes, woodlands all awaking,
Daisies star the plain;
Swift their southern skies forsaking,
Swallows come again.

May comes, fairest flowers bringing,
Dreams are gliding by;
Lo, the lark his flight is winging,
Carols ring on high!
