Description

North Fourth was named for North 4th St. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. (I was walking down this street when the first strains of the fuging section came to mind. Cf. Banker Street.) This tune was performed by The Art Mob in their Spring, 2009 concerts.

Text

Blest are the sons of peace,
Whose hearts and hopes are one,
Whose kind designs to serve and please
Thro' all their actions run.

Thus on the heav’nly hills
The saints are blest above,
Where joy like morning dew distils,
And all the air is love.
