lyrics

Though critics may bow to art,
and I am its own true lover,
It is not art, but heart,
which wins the wide world over.

It is not art, but heart.

Though perfect the player's touch,
little, if any, he sways us,
Unless we feel his heart throb
through the music he plays us.

It is not art, but heart.

It is not art
but heart.

It is not the artist's skill
which into our soul comes stealing
With a joy that is almost pain,
but it is the player's feeling.

It is not art, but heart.

And it is not the poet's song,
though sweeter than sweet bells chiming,
Which thrills us through and through,
but the heart which beats under the rhyming.

It is not art, but heart.

It is not art
but heart.

And therefore I say again,
though I am art's own true lover,
That it is not art, but heart,
which wins the wide world over.

It is not art
but heart.
