How glorious this day, air with fragrance sweet?
This feeling so tender, so rare, a song of joy I longed to sing,
Jet only whispered a prayer, I gazed below to follow the green,
Of the trees that shadow the creek? or upwards glance to find delight,
In the sky’s blue endless deep, could you be here with me?
View the wondrous sights I see, from this high and lofty spot,
Could I give to you? Half of all I feel, you too would believe in God.
