whom shall I fear?

The LORD is the strength of my life;

of whom shall I be afraid?

Thursday always Thursday;

Have you ever wondered why

It’s the day long chosen for the bird and pumpkin pie?

Turkey always turkey;

Have you ever wondered why,

A native thundering aves

Stuffed from thigh to drumstick thigh?

Dressing always dressing;

Have you ever wondered why,

Dressing packed inside of him then inside you,

Eating till you sigh?

Eating always eating;

Have you ever wondered why?

Because eating with the family is a blessing

Before bye-bye.

– eab, Nov. ‘75

Personal – a former roommate, Paul Zehr, was a distant cousin to Roth. 

He wrote over 100 hymns and a number of anthems but is remembered today as the author of “In My Heart There Rings a Melody” (1924).


I have a song that Jesus gave me

It was sent from heaven above;

There never was a sweeter melody

‘Tis a melody of love.

Chorus: In my heart there rings a melody

There rings a melody with heaven’s harmony;

In my heart there rings a melody

There rings a melody of love!
