I cannot sing the old songs
Though well I know the tune,
Familiar as a cradle-song
With sleep-compelling croon;
Yet though I'm filled with music,
As choirs of summer birds,
"I cannot sing the old songs"--
I do not know the words.

The restless pulse of care,
And come like the benediction

Such songs have power to quiet
The restless pulse of care,
And come like the benediction
That follows after prayer.
