Lyrics

If Worlds Were Formed By Matter
Music by John F. Wilson

If worlds were formed by matter,
And mankind from the dust;
Till time shall end more timely,
There’s nothing here to trust.

Thenceforth to evolution’s
Geology, we say, —
Nothing have we gained therefrom,
And nothing have to pray:

My world has sprung from Spirit,
In everlasting day;
Whereof, I’ve more to glory,
Wherefore, have much to pay.
