Tullius C. O’Kane


O the song of the soul shall not die nor grow old
Nor languish nor pine in the home of our king;
But as ages fly onward new chords shall unfold,
New melodies rising inspire us to sing.


O the song of the soul!
O the song of the soul!
Forever in glory the song of the soul!

And the fair golden harps in the hands of the blest
Shall thrill to a touch that no angel can give,
As we sing in that land where the weary shall rest,
Of one who hath died that the sinner might live.


And as ages fly onward, the worlds cease to be,
And perish the stars that in heaven do throng,
Still the joy of the soul shall be deathless and free,
And deathless and free the sweet notes of her song.
