My home is a suite on the third floor up,
My door has a number in plate,
Wherever a man must make his home
Seems writ by the finger of Fate.

When first I gazed on the city below
My spirit was troubled and sad,
But then I chanced to see the hills --
And the sight made the heart of me glad.

One morn as I rose to hurry away
I saw the dawn on the hills,
Like a promise of hope in beauty it came,
No brush the picture fulfills.

The moon dipped low and the sun came up
Flooding the sky with light,
It strengthened my day so wrought with care
And carried me through to the night.

So the dawn comes up and the hills stand firm
Though my path may be changed now and then,
But as true as the dawn and as firm as the hills,
May I walk with my fellowmen.
