The good New Summertime.
We've heard many songs and
! Of the "Good old Summertime,"
I And really its (Jod given pleasures

But its pleasures aro poison and
bitter its sweets,
Its sorrows are "lino upon line"
My soul is longing, ob, so rauch
For a good Now Summertime I
Oh! The good Now Summertime
thc endless Summertime,
When I'll walk down tho streets
With your Savior and mine!
He now holds my hand and I hold
his, but then 'twill be joy sublime,
To be forever with tho Lord,
In a good New Summertime.
Here tho storms aro so many,
and the thunders so loud,
In this earthly summertime,
And its hot days are soon fol

And so full of disease is thc clim?
But be "who was and is and is

Old things shall pass away and
all things become now"
So we'll have a new Summertime!
Herc dear friends meet to part
and hearts oft ache and break
When affections prove false and
Here our fondest hopes perish
and bitter tears flow,
I And cold death takes our loved
But God shall wipe away all tears
with his own hand so kind!
"There'll bo no more sickness,
sorrow or death,
In the good New Summertime.
