No. 13. ALWAYS SPEAK THE TRUTH.
Allegretto.

Russian.

1. Be the mat-ter what it may, Always speak the truth;
2. Falsehood seldom stands alone, Always speak the truth;
3. When you're wrong the folly own, Always speak the truth;

Whether work or whether play, Always speak the truth;

One begets an-oth - er one, Always speak the truth;
Here's a victory to be won, Always speak the truth;

[graphic][subsumed]

Writ-ten 'tis in virtues chart, Always speak the truth.
Great-er sins and dark-er deeds, Always speak the truth.
Then with courage true and strong, Always speak the truth.

1. Day is breaking, earth is waking, Darkness from the hills is

gone; Pale with terror, ancient error Trembles on her crumbling throne. 2. Day is breaking, earth is waking; Fellow-worker, lend thine ear;

Lis-ten to all nature speaking Words of love and words of cheer.

Up to labor, friend and neighbor! Hoping, working with thy might; Then to labor, friend and neighbor! Hoping, working with thy might;

Heaven is near thee, God doth hear thee, He will ev-er bless the right.

Nev: er fear thee, God is near thee, He will ev-er bless the right.

German.

1. The deep-toned bell is calling us! Children, hither come!

Where're you wander, happy ones, Hither, hith-er come! 2. A-gain its joy-ful pealing sweet, Children, hither come!

In-vites us in our school to meet, Hither, hith-er come! 262

Lo! now a sweet and deeper peal, Softly on the heart doth steal.

And while its echoed mu-sic rings, Ev'ry heart pure incense brings. 9:12

The deep-toned bell is call-ing us! Come, nor long-er roam.
The deep-toned bell is call-ing us! Come, nor long-er roam.
