I stopped and listened zealously . . , unto the hymns to God . . . new faith and hope were given me . .to ever onward plod ... so much so that I raised my voice . . . to join the happy throng . . .for somehow what I heard was like ... an old familiar song . . . and so it was one lonely night ... I heard a choir sing . . . and as the last notes faded low ... I felt the touch of spring. Copyright. 1957, General Fea- 11-15 24-20 12-16-a 20-11 22-1 15-22 25-18 29-25 W. 6 6 54 5', O.
