The Sound of Music
Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
1959

My day in the hills / has come to an end / I know /
A star has come out / to tell me it’s time to go /
But deep in the dark green sha-dows / are voi-ces that urge me to stay /
So I pause and I wait and I lis-ten / for one more sound /
for one more love-ly thing / that the hills / might say /

The hills are a-live / with the sound of mu-sic /
with songs they have sung / for a thou-sand years… /
The hills fill my heart / with the sound of mu-sic… /
My heart wants to sing eve-ry song / it hears /

My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds that rise / from the lake / to the trees /
My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies / from a church / on a breeze /
To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls / o-ver stones on its way /
To sing through the night / like a lark who is lear-ning to pray /

I go to the hills / when my heart is lone-ly /
I know I will hear / what I’ve heard be-fore… /
My heart will be blessed / with the sound of mu-sic /
and I’ll sing / once more…!

大地新象,只因這天籟之聲。
清歌傳唱,千年萬年。
雲嶺送翠,只因這天籟之聲。
我心雀躍不已,只因它拾得片音短曲。

我心澎湃狂喜宛如鳥生新羽展翅飛去,
自湖濱遙向枝頭高棲。
我心呢喃低語彷彿鐘鈴,
自教堂乘風徐徐而來。
歡笑一如小溪清清蜿蜒
宛轉川流石頭間。
徹夜高歌,
就像雲雀習禱,喜悅輕盈。

我總會來到這山嶺,每當我心抑鬱,
我知道定能聽見昔日歌聲。
我心將被賜福,只因這天籟之音。
我也願再次高歌。

山巒因著樂之聲而有了生命,
隨著歌聲靜靜地傳頌千年如新。
我的心田充溢著山中樂音,
我渴望唱出的美妙合音亦如我所聆聽。

心的跳動,就像是小鳥的顫動雙翅,
從湖面飛躍到樹林。
我的心忍不住嘆息,
猶如教堂上的鐘聲隨風搖曳~
笑聲彷彿是在水道中嬉鬧的小溪,
因為石頭絆倒、滑落。
徹夜歌詠的旋律,
如同雀兒學習著晚禱的唱吟。

當我寂寞的時候,我就回抱山林,
我知曉我又能重溫那熟悉的聲音。
這樂聲伴隨祝福緩緩洗滌我的心靈,
而我的歌聲也將永不止息。
