WHEN the beauteous spring is here,

Trees and fields in bloom appear;

And the birds, with cheerful lays,

Warble their Creator's praise.

Lord, afford a spring to me!

Let me draw bright joys from thee;

Ah, my winter has been long;

Chill'd my hopes, suppress'd my song.

How the soul in sadness mourns,

Till its glorious Sun returns,

Till the Spirit's gentle rain

Bids the heart revive again.

Haste, O blessed Saviour, haste:

Tell me all the storms are past,

Speak, and by thy gracious voice

Make my drooping soul rejoice.
