Happy land! happy land!
Whate'er my fate in life may be,
Still again! still again!
My thought will cling to thee
Land of love and sunny skies,
Rich in joy and beauty;
Still make affection duty, Oh!

Happy land! happy land!
Ne'er from thee my heart can stray,
I would fain! hear again!
Thy merry mountain lay;
Li ri la la, li ri la la ,
li ri la li ri la li ri la li ri la la,
Li ri la la li ri la la,
Thy merry Switzer's mountain lay.
