by Ella Higginson (1862 - 1940)

When the birds go north again
Language: English 
Oh, ev'ry year hath its winter,
And ev'ry year hath its rain,
But a day is always coming
When the birds go north again.

Oh, ev'ry heart hath its sorrow,
And ev'ry heart hath its pain,
But a day is always coming
When the birds go north again.
