1. Hearts un-fold like flow'rs be -fore  Thee, Op'n-ing to   the   sun a-bove.
2. Stars and an-gels   sing    a-  round Thee, Cen-ter  of   un   -bro-ken praise.

1. Melt the  clouds of sin and  sad-ness;  Drive the dark of  doubt a  -way;
2. Field and for-est,  vale and moun-tain, Flow-'ry  mead-ow, flash-ing sea,
3. Ev-er     sing-ing, march we on-ward,   Vic-tors  in   the midst of  strife;

1. Giv-er    of im   -mor  -tal glad-ness, Fill us with the  light of day.
2. Chant-ing bird and flow -ing foun-tain  Call us to   re  -joice in Thee.
3. Joy-ful   mu-sic   leads us  on  -ward  In the  tri -umph song  of life.
