Kindly Spring Again Is Here ~ Hymn

Kindly Spring Again Is Here

Kindly spring again is here,
Trees and fields in bloom appear;
Hark! the birds with artless lays
Warble their Creator’s praise.

Where in winter all was snow,
Now the flowers in clusters grow;
And the corn, in green array,
Promises a harvest-day.

Lord, afford a spring to me,
Let me feel like what I see;
Speak, and by Thy gracious voice,
Make my drooping soul rejoice.

On Thy garden deign to smile,
Raise the plants, enrich the soil;
Soon Thy presence will restore
Life to what seemed dead before.

John Newton verses 1-3 Author of verse 4 is unknown

  1. This hymn is new to me.. What lovely words and it expresses exactly how we feel when spring comes as a gift from our Creator.

  2. I referred to this hymn today, too! Only some of the lines are different. I wonder if he wrote more than one version or if others have adapted it over the years. But I love the imagery of God reviving us after winter, physical and spiritual.
