Evening in Mount Mellary

Lyrics

I have seen a golden sunset
From the slopes of Knockmealdown
Purple shadows gently steering
O’er the rolling hills of brown
In the trees, the thrush and blackbirds
Sing their songs of ecstasy
All is quiet, all is peaceful
Evening in Mount Mellary

CHORUS
Little heaven in the mountains
Joy and peace, we find in thee
Ever shall our hearts remember
Evening in Mount Mellary

Out beyond the dreaming meadows
Through the woods and hilltops bare
Steals the songs of holy voices
Blending in a goodnight prayer
O’er on fields, across the valley
They’re calling, so tenderly
All is quiet, all is peaceful
Evening in Mount Mellary
Chorus
