1 A song, a song for water bright,
In love and beauty flowing!
It sings its way in joy and might,
The gift of heaven bestowing.
A song, a song for water fair,
As pure and free as mountain air!
A song, a song of water fair,
As pure and free as mountain air.
2 There’s balm in every sparkling drop,
In every wave there’s pleasure;
In diamond spray it leaps away,
A lovely boon and treasure.
3 It nerves the hand to deeds of might;
It wakes the heart to gladness!
It breathes a psalm of pure delight,
And charms us all from sadness! [Refrain]
4 From every vale and glade and hill
It speaks of nature’s kindness!
O, may we heed the lesson still,
Nor shun it in our blindness! [Refrain]
