There’s music in the forest,
At morning’s earliest hour;
When pearly dewdrops glisten
On every tree and flower,
’Tis when the mountain zephyrs
The pine’s dark branches move,
It echoes o’er the meadows,
Bird notes of mirth and love.

There’s music when the moonlight
Comes dancing o’er the lake,
In many a gentle whisper
That viewless spirits wake;
The insects happy chorus
That swells on evening air,
In every rustling leaflet—
There’s music everywhere.

There’s music in the ocean
When wild the tempest raves;
And when the winds are sleeping
Deep in their coral caves,
When silver stars are shining
O’er ripples soft and fair,
There’s “music in the waters,”—
There’s music everywhere.
