    Lyrics:
    Here's a hymn to welcome in the day
    Heralding a summer's early sway
    And all the bulbs all comin' in
    To begin
    The thrushes' bleeding battle with the wrens
    Disrupts my reverie again

    Pegging clothing on the line
    Training jasmine how to vine
    Up the arbor to your door
    And more
    Standing on the landing with the war
    You shouldered all the night before

    But once upon it
    The yellow bonnets
    Garland all the lawn
    You were waking
    Day was breaking
    A panoply of song
    And summer comes to Springville Hill

    A barony of ivy in the trees
    Expanding out its empire by degrees
    And all the branches burst abloom
    In the boom
    Heaven sent this cardinal maroon
    To decorate our living room

    But once upon it
    The yellow bonnets
    Garland all the lawn
    You were waking
    Day was breaking
    A panoply of song
    And summer comes to Springville Hill

    And years from now when this old light
    Isn't ambling anymore
    Will I bring myself to write
    "I give my best to Springville Hill"

    But once upon it
    The yellow bonnets
    Garland all the lawn
    You were waking
    Day was breaking
    A panoply of song
    And summer comes to Springville Hill
