Tls strange men buy the cup of woe,
When Joy's free gljss In nigh !
Tin st r.inge that men false colors show,
Since all disclaim to lie !
Tls strange that men should live as though

And dark paths lead us down;
Whili light will fill the soul with hope,
And darkness hope will drown

Wear honor's shining crown.
