Julie Andrews – 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

    "Edelweiss the Song" is a well researched and written song which compliments this stunning plant species of the Alps.
    The song "Edelweiss" brought together a not sure generation in the early years of Hitler's regime in the 1950's. I have come to love and cherished this song the day I was introduced to music.

    Peace, harmony, happy, fullness, relief, content.

    I was always embarrassed about my name, until a date took me to see the movie shortly after it came out in 1965. When I first heard Richard Plummer sing the song with my name in it, it sent chills all over me, and it still does, every time I hear it. As commenter "unregistered" so apply noted, I was one of that unsure generation in the aftermath of Hitler's regime. The song "Edelweiss", so beautifully composed by Rogers and Hammerstein, brought a sense of peace and happiness about being German/Austrian to me for the first time in my life, and continues to do so 5 decades later.
