    I think, whatever mortals crave,
    With impotent endeavor,
    A wreath--a rank--a throne--a grave--
    The world goes round forever;
    I think that life is not too long,
    And therefore I determine,
    That many people read a song,
    Who will not read a sermon.

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

The restless pulse of care,
And come like the benediction
That follows after prayer.

Listen to that song, and learn it!
Half my kingdom would I give,
As I live,
If by such songs you would earn it.
