8111. Summer

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

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

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

3 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]
