Lyrics: Anon

Hail! young spring, the earth adorning,
Drive old winter far away;
Wake the rosy-finger'd morning;
Deck the sun in radiance gay.

Flora, bring thy sweetest treasure,
Zephyr, waft thy softest gale;
Chant, ye birds, the song of pleasure;
Echo warble it through the vale.

Leafless, tuneless, unendearing
Stood the long deserted grove;
But, sweet spring, at thy appearing,
All is harmony and love.
