Lyrics

The loyal roses redden and smiling deck the sod,
The world is like a picture, where the green fields smile to God;
The birds in all the branches, are singing to the blue,
And the winds that wave the treetops toss the blossoms over you.
For it's May-time, it's May-time,
And all the world is bright,
And love is in the sunshine
And the golden stars of night,
For it's May-time, it;s May-time,
And all the world is bright,
And love is in the sunshine
And the golden stars of night!
Oh the splendor of the gardens and the glory of the green,
Of banks and singing rivers where the lovely lilies lean!
The tinkle, faintly wafted, of far off cattle bells,
And the thrushes' silver music in the dim and dreamy dells!
for it's May-time, it's May-time,
And all the world is bright,
And love is in the sunshine,
And the golden stars of night,
For it's May-time, it's May-time,
And all the world is bright,
And love is in the sunshine
And the golden stars of night.
