Religion Is Sweet 420

Tune: W. R. Waldrup, 1850
Alto: Mrs. Anna L. (Cooper) Blackshear, 1902
Lyrics: Mary Masters, 1755
Meter: 7s (7,7,7,7)
'Tis religion that can give
Sweetest pleasures while we live,
'Tis religion must supply
Solid comforts when we die.

After death, its joys will be
Lasting as eternity;
Be the living God my friend,
Then my bliss shall never end.
