SWEET to the morning traveller
The sky-lark's early song,
Whose twinkling wings are seen at fits
The dewy light among.

And cheering to the traveller
The gales that round him play,
When faint and heavily he drags
Along his noon-tide way.

And when beneath the unclouded sun
Full wearily toils he,
The flowing water makes to him
A pleasant melody.

And when the evening light decays
And all is calm around,
There is sweet music to his ear
In the distant sheep-bells' sound.

But oh! of all delightful sounds
Of evening or of morn,
The sweetest is the voice of love.
That welcomes his return.
