First Line: Some said, 'he was strong.' he was weak
Last Line: At the stroke of death, at the touch of love.
Subject(s): Soul


SOME said, "He was strong." He was weak;
For he never could sing or speak
Of the things beneath or the things above,
Till his soul was touched by death or love.

Some said, "He was weak." They were wrong.
For the soul must be strong
That can break into song
Of the things beneath and the things above,
At the stroke of death, at the touch of love.
