THE HAPPIEST HEART
Oh happy the hearts that beat with love,
Who have in others made
The joy of living; but sometime
Their gladness, too, must fade.
How happy the hearts of children gay,
Who in each hour find
Some sweetness; but they, too
Must leave these days behind.
But, oh, the happiest heart, I know,
Beats in some quiet breast,
That finds the quiet daylight sweet
And leaves to God the rest.
