Summer ~ Hymn

Summer

The long, long days of summer,
The sunny days are here;
The ripening grain is bending,
The air is soft and clear.

Refrain

O God, Thy tender mercies
Like evening dews descend;
Thou givest rain and sunshine,
On Thee our hopes depend.

The glowing heat at noontide,
The hush of evening’s calm,
Remind us of Thy presence,
To Thee we raise our psalm.

Refrain

In life’s fair summer weather,
Oh, may we look to Thee;
And when the storms o’ertake us,
Our refuge Thou shalt be.

Refrain

Words: Julia H. Johnston, 1899.

Happy Father’s Day!
