Come and see my wondrous beauty
of the thistle and the pine,
come and breathe my scented forest
come and drink my fruited vine.

Come and stroll along my rivers
hear my mountain waters flow,
look beyond to the horizon
when the sunset is aglow.

In the Springtime see me blossom
in the Summer meadows green,
see my color in the Autumn
and my white in Winter sheen.

Let all natures arms embrace you
as the seasons fill the air,
when it’s time to sleep within me
I will thus embrace you there.

Lay you down within my valley
rest your head within my keep,
till the resurrection morning
calls you forward from thy sleep.
