At the coming of the Spring,
All the village bells will ring;
Sounding cheerily,
For we merrily
Welcome in the Spring so fair!
Maidens all fresh flowers bring,
Laugh and dance and ever sing;
Gay and sprightly,
Foot it lightly;
Let the Spring have welcome rare!
At the coming of the Spring,
All the village bells will ring;
Chiming so cheerily,
While we right merrily
Welcome back the welcome Spring.
When the darkness flyeth,
Then morning cometh;
When the Winter hieth,
Sweet Spring returneth;
So, after sorrow,
Hail we Hope's dawning,
And from the Spring borrow
Gladness in the morning!
At the coming of the Spring,
All the village bells will ring;
Sounding cheerily,
For we merrily
Welcome in the Spring so fair!
Maidens all fresh flowers bring,
Posies make and garlands fling;
Gay and sprightly,
Foot it lightly;
Let the Spring have welcome rare!
At the coming of the Spring,
All the merry bells will ring;
Chiming so cheerily,
While we right merrily
Welcome back the welcome Spring.
