Extract.

EXTRACT.
by Sarah Ward Benedict

Grander, grander notes are swelling
From the valleys and the hills;
Tears of thankfulness are welling
As my soul with music fills.
Christian workers, we’ll be voicing
All the notes we’ve learned to-day,
And together go rejoicing
That we’ve found the better way.

Published in ‘Local and National Poets of America” edited and compiled by Thomas W. Herringshaw in 1892
