Read’—Sweet’—how others’—strove’—
Till we’—are stouter’—
What they’—renounced’—
Till we’—are less afraid’—
How many times they’—bore the faithful witness’—
Till we’—are helped’—
As if a Kingdom’—cared!
 
Read then’—of faith’—
That shone above the fagot’—
Clear strains of Hymn
The River could not drown’—
Brave names of Men’—
And Celestial Women’—
Passed out’—of Record
Into’—Renown!
