(Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein Jr.)

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.

Many times, people ask me for the ""real"" version in German.
I haven't seen a German translation that totally satisfies me,
but here's one:

Edelweiss, Edelweiss,
Jeden Morgen mich gruessen
Klein und weiss, rein und weiss,
Du siehst mir aus so froehlich.
Blume von weiss wie du wachs und blum,
Wachs und blum fuer ewig.
Edelweiss, Edelweiss, Meine Heimat gesegnet.

Edelweiss [Rodgers & Hammerstein] (A rather syrupy interpretation)
