Arise! arise! the sunbeams hail,
And bid thee God's wide world survey.
Go, wander over hill and dale.
E'er cheerfully upon thy way.
Arise! arise! the sunbeams hail!

The torrent's course ne'er standeth still,
It gaily runs its race
Hear'st thou the winds so shrill?
They rush from place to place.

The moon she journeys to and fro,
The sun doth daily flee,
Unwearied o'er the mountain's brow,
Then down into the sea.

And man, thou sittest e'er at home,
Yet longest to be free.
Arise, and o'er the valley roam,
And seek the distant zone!
Who knows where Fortune blooms for thee,
Go seek her, wouldst thou win.
Arise, arise!
