These are the days of the endless summer
 These are the days, the time is now
 There is no past, there's only future 
There's only here, there's only now

Oh your smiling face, your gracious presence
The fires of spring are kindling bright
Oh the radiant heart and the song of glory  Crying freedom into night 

 These are the days by the sparkling river
His timely grace and our treasured find
This is the love of the one magician  Turned the water into wine

 These are days of the endless dancing 
And the long walks on the summer night
 These are the days of the true romancing 
When I'm holding you, oh, so tight 

 These are the days by the sparkling river
And His timely grace and the treasured find
This is the love of the one great magician
 Turned the water into wine

 These are the days now that we must savor 
And we must enjoy as we can
 These are the days that will last forever 
You've got to hold them in your heart.
