A love song soothes my soul so:
When spring flow’rs start to grow,
And bees court, like striped bridegrooms,
A fragrant lilac, rose perfumed;
This love song, so bright,
Wings my soul to heaven
I hear the voice of God’s creation,
And work His holy garden.

His beauty seen in petals,
His Spirit, with birds nestles,
Hymns sung by nature’s choirboys,
He gifts us both with grace and joy!
This love song, so bright,
Wings my soul to heaven,
I hear the voice of God’s creation,
And work His holy garden.

A gift then is a garden,
Even as the winter hardens,
The cycle of life and death
Reflects that we shall resurrect!
This love song, so bright,
Wings my soul to heaven,
I hear the voice of God’s creation,
And work His holy garden.
