Our Mountain Home So Dear


Our Mountain Home So Dear


1. Our mountain home so dear,

Where crystal waters clear

Flow ever free,

Flow ever free,

While thru the valleys wide

The flow’rs on ev’ry side,

Blooming in stately pride,

Are fair to see.

2. We’ll roam the verdant hills

And by the sparkling rills

Pluck the wildflow’rs,

Pluck the wildflow’rs;

The fragrance on the air,

The landscape bright and fair,

And sunshine ev’rywhere

Make pleasant hours.

3. In sylvan depth and shade,

In forest and in glade,

Where-e’er we pass,

Where-e’er we pass,

The hand of God we see

In leaf and bud and tree,

Or bird or humming bee,

Or blade of grass.

4. The streamlet, flow’r, and sod

Bespeak the works of God;

And all combine,

And all combine,

With most transporting grace,

His handiwork to trace,

Thru nature’s smiling face,

In art divine.
