I would not live alway: I ask not to stayWhere storm after storm rises dark o’er the way.
I would not live alway (published 1826), reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
That heavenly music! what is it I hear?The notes of the harpers ring sweet in mine ear.And, see, soft unfolding those portals of gold,The King all arrayed in his beauty behold!William Augustus Muhlenberg
