Something Within

Have you that something, that burning desire?

Have you that something that never doth tire?

Oh, if you have it –that Heavenly Fire!

Then let the world know there is something within.

Something within me that holdeth the reins,

Something within me that banishes pain,

Something within me I cannot explain,

All that I know there is something within.
