1  Phoebus shines in splendour o'er us,
Let us through the meadows roam;
Nature's face, so bright before us,
Bids us wander from our home.
Woods and groves are all inviting,
Flow'rets sweet adorn the ground;
Birds, their cheerful songs reciting,
Charm the lovely scene around.
R.  Phoebus shines in splendour o'er us,
Let us through the meadows roam;
Nature's face, so bright before us,
Bids us wander from our home.

2  Fields are perfumed with the sweetness
Rising from the new-mown hay;
Deer, disturbed, bound on with fleetness,
Over hill and dale away.
Trees their giant limbs are spreading,
To afford a cooling shade;
And the scented shrubs are shedding
Sweets throughout the woodland glade.
R.  Phoebus shines in splendour o'er us,
Let us through the meadows roam;
Nature's face, so bright before us,
Bids us wander from our home.
