Words by Eben E Rexford. Music by A. Ferner.

As life's summer days go by us,
Many happy days are ours;
Hearts with love and hope are brimming,
And the way is bright with flowers,
But our dreams may prove dreams only,
Hopes may fail and hearts grow sad,
But a faith in God's sweet sunshine,
Back of clouds, may make us glad.

Drifting down time's rapid river,
Leaves upon a restless stream:
Darling, clasp my true hand close,
Life is passing like a dream.

While life's summer days go by us,
Dark with clouds, or Bright with sun,
You and I each have a mission,
Let us see it bravely done.
There are loving words to utter.
There are burdens we may bear,
For the weak and for the weary-
Work is waiting everywhere.- Chorus.

As the days go drifting by us,
Sing a little hopeful song,
It may make some eye grow brighter,
It may make some weak heart strong;
Sing of all glad things that wait us
In a time that is to be;
If we but fulfill the mission
God has given you and me.-Chorus.
