281- There Lives a Voice Within Me

MIDI MP3 Partition

1
There lives a voice within me,
Guest angel of my heart,
Whose whisperings strive to win me
To act a noble part.
Up evermore it springeth
Like some sweet melody,
And evermore it singeth
This song of songs to me:

Refrain
This world is full of beauty
That points the soul above,
And if we did our duty,
It might be full of love.

2
The leaf tongues of the forest,
The flower lips of the sod,
The birds that hymn their raptures
Up to the throne of God;
The summer wind that bringeth
Joy over land and sea,
Have each a voice that singeth
This song of songs to me:

3
O voice of God most tender,
O voice of God divine,
Still be my heart's defender
Till every thought is Thine;
My soul in gladness bringeth
Its songs of praise to Thee,
While all around me singeth
This song of songs to me:
