From Sense To Soul

Peter B. Allen  •  Digital Sheet Music (DSM)


Tender opening melody, builds to soaring vocal line on the text: “Thought soars enraptured, fetterless and free…” Melodic hook in each verse adds unity. Legato, flowing, with rich melodic invention. Very popular.

From Sense To Soul

Lyrics: Violet Hay
Composer: Peter B. Allen

From sense to Soul my pathway lies before me,
From mist and shadow into Truth’s clear day;
The dawn of all things real is breaking o’er me,
My heart is singing: I have found the way.

I reach Mind’s open door, and at its portal
I know that where I stand is holy ground;
I feel the calm and joy of things immortal,
The loveliness of Love is all around.

The way leads upward and its goal draws nearer,
Thought soars enraptured, fetterless and free;
The vision infinite to me grows clearer, I touch the fringes of eternity.
I touch the fringes of eternity.
