Music, tone of violin
Piano, jazz, can set a mood
Wagner, Bach, and theremin
Are considered very good.
But so is caring for the poor
And trying to be empathetic
Could it be that what is moral
Also is what is aesthetic?
Without conviction our actions are hollow
Art without moral is hard to swallow
For that which makes a thing beautiful
Is also that which makes us whole.
Good is not better
And bad is not worse
By God we must measure
Soul, string, and verse
Good, better; worse worst
Bad, worse; better best
One thing last, one thing first
Some are better than all the rest
In order to compare two things
You need to know that better is
You need to know about your sins
Nothing can be relative.
Faith and virtue, viola and flute
Truth and beauty are both absolute
Both we call good, both we applaud
Because both were created by the very same God.
