Of thc '.'Good old Summertime"

But its pleasuros aro poison and

Its sorrows are "lino upon line"
My soul is longing, ob, so much
For a good Now Summertime I
Oh 1 The good Now Summertime
tho endless Summertime,
When I'll walk down thc streets
With your Savior and minc!
Ile now holds my hand and I hold

To be forever with the 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 fall of disease is the clime
But he "who was and is and is
Says in His Word divine,
Old things shall pass away and
all things become new"
So we'll have a now Summertime!
Here 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,
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,
1 sorrow or death,
In the good New Summertime.
