    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.

A song of hate is a song of Hell;

A song of hate is a song of Hell;
Some there be who sing it well.
Let them sing it loud and long,
We lift our hearts in a loftier song:
We life our hearts to Heaven above,
Singing the glory of her we love,
England.

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.

Give us a song to cheer.

And grant that when I face the grisly Thing,
My song may trumptet down the gray Perhaps
Let me be as a tune-swept fiddlestring
That feels the Master Melody--and snaps.
