High praise to producers I’m singing today,
High praise for their courses they steadily stay—
Who fashion the fine things by which I do live
And set out to trade and, no, never to give.
Great praise to their effort and thoughtful good sense,
Sure-guided by judgment and hard evidence,
With firm moral strength to do everything right
And push themselves upward to profit’s glad height.
My high praise my great praise, so true in me, strong,
Fills all of my being, bursts out in pure song!
Straight-shooting producers, now stand you up proud,
receive my life’s blessings with heads all unbowed!
