Ye feathered warblers of the spring,

Harmonious anthems raise
To him who shaped your finer mould,
Who tipped your glittering wings with gold,

And tuned your voice to praise.

Let man, in God's own image made,

His breath in praise employ;
Spread wide his Maker's name around,
Till heaven shall echo back the sound,

In songs of holy joy.
