Representative Text

1 Let the path be bright, with sunny skies,
Let joy fade not away,
Let the home be dear with tender ties,
And yet, how sweet to say,

Refrain:
‘Tis only the Lord, ‘tis only the Lord
Can satisfy the soul;
‘Tis only the Lord, ‘tis only the Lord
Can satisfy the soul.

2 Let the earth bestow its wealth and pride,
Let fame its laurels bring,
Let the dearest wish be gratified,
And yet, how sweet to say, [Refrain]

3 Let the sweetest hopes be given here,
Let all be one bright day,
Let the heart be glad and full of cheer,
And yet, how sweet to say, [Refrain]
