HERE'S never a rose in all the world

But makes some green spray sweeter; There's never a wind in all the sky

But makes some bird wing fleeter; There's never a star but brings to heaven

Some silver radiance tender; And never a rosy cloud but helps

To crown the sunset splendor;
No robin but


some heart
His dawn-like gladness voicing;
God gives us all some small sweet way

To set the world rejoicing.--Selected.
