This song was written by Franz Schubert. He was one of the greatest songwriters, yet lived a short life - 1797 to 1828. Incredibly, he wrote over 600 songs. He once said, "I am in the world only for the purpose of composing. What I feel in my heart, I give to the world." Excellent advise for all to live by.
