THE NEW SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Oh, sing, thou happy heart!
Last Line: Sing to the lost of heaven!

OH, sing, thou happy heart!
Thy world is all in bloom.
Sing, through the grateful tears that start
At Jesus' opening tomb!
Sing! even in grief be glad!
Breaks the new day within!
Thy path in living green is clad;
Thou leavest behind thy sin.
Sing, nor look backward, down
Thy dark, deserted Past!
Before thee gleams thy promised crown;
Thou shalt reach home at last.
Sing, spirit, from the height
Where Love thy wing hath borne:
Sing to the darkness of the light!
Sing to the night of morn!
Oh, sing, thou ransomed one,
Sing of thy sins forgiven!
Sing to the slumberers of the Sun!
Sing to the lost of Heaven!
