Give Me a Man of Honest Heart.
Words by O. Stedman. Music by M. Hobson.

Give me a man of honest heart,
I care not what he be;
He may be rich, he may be poor,
It matters not to me.
He may not wear a silken vest,
Or boast of high degree;
But if he owns an honest heart,
He's nature's all to me;
But if he owns an honest heart,
He's nature's all to me.

All praise then be to him
Who acts a noble part;
For a right good man is he
Who owns an honest heart.

What if a man can learning boast,
And wealth of golden ore?
Yet, if he lacks an honest heart,
I call him yet but poor.
Tell me not of wealth and rank,
They're bubbles on the sea;
A man may dwell in gilded hulls,
But may not honest be.-Chorus.

Oh! if he owns an honest heart,
Is gentle, true and kind,
We need not search the wide world o'er,
A better man to And.
Then give to every man his due,
Who acts the honest plan;
It is the heart, and not the coat,
That makes the honest man.-Chorus.
