(American folk tune, Lyrics by Frederick L. Hosmer)
1. I walk the unfrequented road with open eye and ear;
I watch afield the farmer load the bounty of the year.
2. A beauty springtime never knew haunts all the quiet ways,
and sweeter shines the landscape through its veil of autumn haze.
3. I face the hills, the streams, the wood, and feel with all akin;
my heart expands; their fortitude and peace and joy flow in.
