I will call and you shall follow
Over hill and over hollow
Shall be heard my happy voice,
And for you that hear my calling,
With a rising, with a falling,
With a sound that is enthralling,
’Twill your listening heart rejoice!

I will call and you shall follow
Over hill and over hollow,
Till you learn my happy song!
From the woodland ways I bring it,
O’er the towers and trees I fling it,
So that all the bells can ring it,
And the birds can sing it long!
My happy song!

And for some that may not follow,
Those who are not free to follow,
From that far off hill and hollow,
There’s a gift that I can bring,
There’s a tale and there’s a token,
There’s a secret newly spoken,
There’s a word that’s yet unbroken,
There’s a song of Hope to sing,
a song!

I will call and they shall follow,
In their fancy they shall follow,
Over hill and over hollow,
They shall hear my happy song!
I shall bring it from the fountain,
From the brightly flowing fountain,
From the forest, from the mountain
I shall bring my happy song,
my song!
