SINGERS
[ Also see Singing ]

Forever singing, as they shine,
  The hand that made us is divine.
      - Joseph Addison

Sing, seraph with the glory! heaven is high.
  Sing, poet with the sorrow! earth is low.
    The universe's inward voices cry
      "Amen" to either song of joy and woe.
        Sing, seraph, poet! sing on equally!
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

When God helps all the workers for His world,
  The singers shall have help of Him, not last.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

I send my heart up to thee, all my heart
  In this my singing!
    For the stars help me, and the sea bear part.
      - Robert Browning

* * * * * Songs of that high art
  Which, as winds do in the pine,
    Find an answer in each heart.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Singing has nothing to do with the affairs of this world: it is not for the law. Singers are merry, and free from sorrows and cares.
      - Martin Luther

Or bid the soul of Orpheus sing
  Such notes as, warbled to the string,
    Drew iron tears down Pluto's cheek.
      - John Milton

Sweetest the strain when in the song
  The singer has been lost.
      - Elizabeth Stuart Phelps (Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward)

Among all the instruments which sound in Haydn's child's concerts, that best serves the purposes of educational music which is born with the performer,--the voice. In the childhood of nations speaking was singing.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

But one Puritan amongst them, and he sings psalms to hornpipes.
      - William Shakespeare

For my voice, I have lost it with hollaing and singing of anthems.
      - William Shakespeare

Thou hast by moonlight at her window sung
  With feigning voice verses feigning love.
      - William Shakespeare

Above the clouds I lift my wing
  To hear the bells of Heaven ring;
    Some of their music, though my fights be wild,
      To Earth I bring;
        Then let me soar and sing!
      - Edmund Clarence Stedman
