„She said “Oh rather thank thy God,
My lot is not thine own.
How would my weary feet rejoice
Like thine to walk and run
Over the soft and fragrant grass,
Beneath yon cheerful sun.

Though sore my sickness, it is borne

He would give all, could he but give
His only child thy health!
Ah, judge not by the outside show
Of this world, vain and frail —”“

„God be thanked for the Milky Way that runs across the sky,
That's the path that my feet would tread whenever I have to die.“

Some folks call it a Silver Sword, and some a Pearly Crown, But the only thing I think it is, is Main Street, Heaventown. "Main Street"
