Edelweiss (from "The Sound of Music")

Music by Richard Rodgers | Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II 

Edelweiss, Edelweiss,
Every morning you greet me,
Small and White,
Clean and bright
You look happy to meet me.

Blossoms of snow may you bloom and grow,
Bloom and grow forever.

Edelweiss Edelweiss
Bless my home land forever.

From the musical "The Sound of Music" (1959). Performed in the 1965 film adaptation by Christopher Plummer as "Captain" and Julie Andrews as "Maria."
