“There’s Music In The Air”
There’s music in the air,
When the infant morn is nigh,
And faint its blush is seen
On the bright and laughing sky.
Many a harp’s ecstatic sound,
With its thrill of joy profound,
While we list, enchanted there,
To the music in the air.
There’s music in the air,
When the noontide’s sultry beam
Reflects a golden light
On the distant mountain stream.
When beneath some grateful shade,
Sorrow’s aching head is laid,
Sweetly to the spirit there
Comes the music in the air.
3. There’s music in the air,
When the twilight’s gently sigh
Is lost on evening’s breast,
As its pensive beauties die.
Then, oh, then the loved ones gone
Wake the pure celestial song,
Angel voices greet us there,
In the music in the air.
