The Stranger Within.
Ten thouiand faces on the street.
And not one face I know;
Ten thouiand souls I daily meet.
Whene'er I come and go.
Ten thouiand hearts, both crave and rjr
AU moving here and there;
Ten thousand people on their way.
And only God knows where.
Ten thousand Hchts to shed their rare
Upon the city's night;
Ten thousand Joys within her ways.
But none for me in sight.
For oh. this endless stream of life.
Which others live to bless.
Where lights and cayety are rife.
Adds to my loneliness.
Ten thousand hopes dashed to the earth.
To molder with the years.
Ten thousand miles from land of birth.
Ten thousand Idle tears.
And yet the souls, both grave and say.
They neither know nor care;
Then thousand still upon their way.
And only Qod knows where.
