SPRING UNLOCKS THE FLOWERS TO PAINT THE LAUGHING SOIL. —BISHOP REGINALD HEBER

When Spring Unlocks the Flowers

Author: Reginald Huber

Tune: GOSTERWOOD

1. When spring unlocks the flowers 
to paint the laughing soil;
When summer’s balmy showers 
refresh the mower’s toil;
When winter binds in frosty chains 
the fallow and the flood;
In God the earth rejoiceth still 
and owns his maker good.

2. The birds that wake the morning 
and those that love the shade;
The winds that sweep the mountain 
or lull the drowsy glade;
The sun that from his amber bower 
rejoiceth on his way,
The moon and stars their master’s name 
in silent pomp display.

3. Shall man, the lord of nature,
expectant of the sky,
Shall man alone, unthankful,
his little praise deny?
No; let the year forsake his course,
the seasons cease to be,
Thee, Master, must we always love,
and Savior, honor Thee.

4. The flowers of spring may wither,
the hope of summer fade,
The autumn droop in winter,
the birds forsake the shade;
The winds be lulled, the sun and moon
forget their old decree;
But we, in nature’s latest hour,
O Lord, will cling to Thee!
