Song of the Skylark


(Felix Mendelssohn)

1. Aloft in the sky the song of the lark
Drifts downward to welcome the breaking day.
In lyrical notes the melody floats:

“All hail, lovely spring!” is his message. (repeat)

2. The fresh morning air, the green waving trees,
Re-echo the song of the joyous lark.
The breeze carries on his hymn to the dawn. Refrain
