My day in the hills
Has come to an end, I know
A star has come out
To tell me it's time to go
But deep in the dark green shadows,
There are voices that urge me to stay
So I pause and I wait and I listen,
For one more sound,
For one more lovely thing
That the hills might say!

The hills are alive
With the sound of music
With songs they have sung
For a thousand years
The hills fill my heart
With the sound of music
My heart wants to sing
Every song it hears

My heart wants to beat like the wings
Of the birds that rise
>From the lake to the trees
My heart wants to sigh
Like a chime that flies
>From a church on a breeze,

To laugh like a brook
When it trips and falls
Over stones on its way,
To sing through the night,
Like a lark who is learning to pray

I go to the hills
When my heart is lonely
I know I will hear
What I heard before
My heart will be blessed
With the sound of music
And I'll sing once more
