MY PSALM.

John Greenleaf Whittier. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Allegretto.

1. I mourn no more my van - ished years: Be - neath a ten - der

2. The airs of spring may nev - er play A - mong the ripen-ing

3. All as God wills, who wise-ly heeds To give or to with-

4. That care and tri - al seem at last, Thro' mem - 'ry's sun - set


rain, An A - pril rain of smiles and tears. My

corn, Nor fresh - ness of the flowers of May Blow

And know - eth more of all my needs Than

air. Like moun - tain - ran - ges o - ver - past,


heart is young a - gain, The west - winds blow, and,

through the au - tumn morn; Yet shall the blue - eyed

all my prayers have told I E - nough that bless - ings

pur - ple dis - tance fair;mdash; And so the shad - ows


sing - ing low, I hear the glad streams run; The

gen - tian look Thro' fring - ed lids to heaven. And

de - served Have marked my err - ing track;— That

fall a - part. And so the west - winds play: And

dim.

win - dows of my soul I throw Wide o - pen to the sun.

the pale as - ter in the brook Shall see its im - age given.

whereso - e’er my feet have swerv’d, His chastening turned me back;—

all the win - dows of my heart I o - pen to the day.
