Lyrics

The hunter dreads no danger,
While a long the steep locks wending;
From youth a mountain ranger,
With the wind and snow contending.
From the peak he looks on the valley brooks,
While his heart for home is bounding;
And he marks the maid on the valley glade,
Who lists to his wild horn sounding.
way then to the &c, &c.

The way then to the mountains,
While the morning sun is shining;
The mist has left the fountain,
And the herds in shade are reclining.
Up the rocks we'll climb to the top sublime,
And we'll watch the light deer bounding;
While the sun wades through the sea of blue,
And the alpine horn is sounding.
A way then to the mountains,
While the morning sun is shining;
The mist has left the fountains,
And the herds in shade are reclining.
