While blending voices gently swing and sway

In melodies of love,

Whose mighty currents move,
With singing near and singing far away;

Sweet in the glow of morning light,
And sweeter still across the starlit gulf of

night.

Music, in thee we float,

And lose the lonely note
Of self in thy celestial-ordered strain,

Until at last we find

The life to love resigned
In harmony of joy restored again;

And songs that cheered our mortal days Break on the coast of light in endless hymns of praise.

Henry Van Dyke.

BEETHOVEN AND ANGELO

One made the surging sea of tone

Subservient to his rod:
One from the sterile womb of stone
Raised children unto God.

John B. Tabb.
