F
Oh, what a happy soul am I! Although I cannot see,
I am resolved that in this world, contented I will be.
How many blessings I enjoy that other people don't;
To weep and sigh because I'm blind, I cannot, and I won't.

R
It may seem a little old-fashioned, always to begin one's work with prayer, but I never undertake a hymn without first asking the good Lord to be my inspiration.
A
This is my story, this is my Song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long.
N
I have not for a moment in more than eighty-five years felt a spark of resentment against him, because I have always believed...that the good Lord...by this means consecrated me to the work that I am still permitted to do.
K
When I get to heaven, the first face that shall ever gladden my sight will be that of my Savior.
