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

Such songs have power to quiet
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.
