Soft, soft music is stealing,
Sweet, sweet lingers the strain;
Loud, loud now it is pealing,
Waking the echoes again!
Yes, yes, yes, yes,
Waking the echoes again!

Join, join children of sadness,
Send, send sorrow away;
Now, now changing to gladness,
Warble this beautiful lay;
Yes, yes, yes, yes,
Warble this beautiful lay.

Hope, hope fair and enduring,
Joy, joy bright as the day;
Love, love heaven ensuring,
Sweetly invites you away;
Yes, yes, yes, yes,
Sweetly invites you away.
