Edelweiss




One of the most beloved Sound of Music songs is the ballad Edelweiss. Many people think that the song ‘Edelweiss’ was written centuries ago and is the National Anthem of Austria. However, it turns out that the song was written by Oscar Hammerstein II for the Sound of Music in 1959.

Oh, and an Edelweiss? It’s a white flower found high in the Alpine hills.




Edelweiss 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
