|Marcus - Music In My Soul|
|Tuesday, August 23, 1927|
|There's music in my soul today,|
A joy of heart not there before:
This state of conscience I relay
To rich and proud and meek and poor.
There's music in my happy Soul:
From Heaven's realm doth truly flow
This music in my happy Soul,
My conscience tells me rightly so.
My song of joy I sing to you:
Let peace and love forever be
Among ye men of every hue,
Of every land and charted sea.
I crave no other fortune great,
But joy to live in peace with God;
My hopes are fixed on His Estate,
In faith so true as prophets had.
This music in my soul today
I spread in truth with love unfurled;
On waves of cheer it goes, I pray,
To reach around the belted world.
|Haile Selassie I|
