Sounds of Home – Note

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the April 6th edition of Sounds of Home!

Danish Hiking Song

Hustle up you lazy good-for-nothing sofa lover,
Dust the cobwebs from your soul.
Join our happy song as we stride along
With the forests and the fields our goal.

Take your leave from books our dusty, musty friends and tyrants,
And declare your liberty;
Books may be okay for another day,
But today we will be gay and free.

Blue skies are calling, gentle winds are blowing;
Kind Mother Nature heals the strain and ends decay.
Where flowers bloom and quiet streams are flowing
We find the strength to meet the tasks of today.

Join our company of hiking-liking nature seekers,
Fall in line and step along!
Drive away the blues, sing the song you choose,
And the weakest will grow glad and strong!

Though your spirit’s low from penny-worries, double-trouble,
Never mind but step along.
If your strength gives out, lift your voice and shout,
You will find your second wind in song!

Blue skies are calling, gentle winds are blowing;
Kind Mother Nature heals the strain and ends decay.
Where flowers bloom and quiet streams are flowing
We find the strength to meet the tasks of today.

Text: G.D.N.; trans. by Johs. Knudsen
Music: Gunnar Damgaard Nielsen

    Mark very clever to use connection and note in one response!
