When green leaves come again, my love,
When green leaves come again,—
Why put on such a cloudy face,
When green leaves come again?

Nay, lift up thankful eyes, my sweet!
Count equal, lost and gain:
Because, as long as our world lasts,
Green leaves will come again.

For, sure as earth lives under snows,
And Love lives under pain,
’Tis good to sing with everything,
“When green leaves come again.”
