Edelweiss from "The Sound of Music"

One of the most popular songs by Rodgers & Hammerstein, it was also the last song that the pair wrote together. It features in the Broadway musical and the movie adaptation of The Sound of Music, and is often chosen for mid-ceremony music (such as lighting of the unity candle) or the seating of family members prior to the service. I also frequently play it as background music during parties and other social events.

This piece can be played on pedal harp or lever harp.



Lyrics

Edelweiss, Edelweiss
Every morning you greet me
Small and white, clean and bright
You look happy to meet me

Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever
Edelweiss, Edelweiss
Bless my homeland forever
