1 See the sparkling water,
Flowing now so free,
Dancing down the hillside,
Winding o’er the lea;
Bringing health and vigor
To the toiling man,
Flashing in the sunlight,
Free from poison’s ban.

2 O the crystal water,
How we love the sight
Of its waving beauty
In the sun’s fair light!
Every drop pellucid
Sparkles like a gem,
Brightest of the jewels
In a diadem.

3 Pure, life-giving water,
Flowing free for all!
In its draught no serpent
Lurks to cause our fall;
Sing aloud its praises
Over land and sea;
Pure and sparkling water
Is the drink for me.
