Sheet music for "I Shall Walk Proudly;" the poem was written by Arthur Sampley and the music is by Gerhardt Dorn. The lyrics say "I shall/ walk proudly through these lonely/ ways because I once walked proudly by your side/ not even death can rob me of the bride whose beauty/ made man love and woman praise. I wear with pride the/ splendor that you shed upon my days./ So walks a warrior's steed behind the pall and so the aide behind the/ nation's head and so the bridesmaid to the wedding strain,/ and so I walk, who, having lost my all,/ go with the valiant bearing of the dead and wear, like her, the/ smile above the pain."
Sheet music for "The Visitor," for tenor voice. The poem is written by Arthur Sampley and the music is by George Minter. The lyrics concern a dream wherein a man encounters the boy he once was - interested in freedom, truth, love, and fame instead of the heavenly.
