The world is beautiful, I can’t be sad
my life is full of joy and I am glad
the trees are full of fruit for me to eat
apples and pears, so ripe they taste so sweet.
So warm a site, watching the children play
the sun is shining on a lovely day
the branches bow along the avenue
their welcome shade they give to me and you.
The seasons come around I love them all
winter and spring, summer and then the fall
I like the spring after the winter fest
it leaves the gloom and brings me happiness.
The birds will sing upon the early morn
the sun will kiss my face and break the dawn
I’ll walk along the path I know so well
the blossom on the trees, a fragrant smell.
The sun will shine upon our earthly land
the doom and hate I cannot understand
the beauty of our world, a happy place
I wish it so for all the human race.
