"That Cause" (karaoke)

"That Cause" (sheet music)


That cause can neither be lost nor stayed

Which follows the course of what God has made;

And is not trusting of walls and towers,

But slowly growing from seeds to flowers.

 

Each noble service that men have wrought

Was first conceived as a fruitful thought;

Each worthy cause with a future glorious

By quietly growing becomes victorious.

 

Thereby itself like a tree it shows;

That high it reaches as deep it grows,

And when the storms are its branches shaking,

It deeper root in the soil is taking.

 

Be then no more by a storm dismayed,

For by it the full-grown seeds are laid;

And though the tree by its might it shatters,

What then if thousands of seeds it scatters.
