The shield and sword in life's great
It may not be our fate to wear
The golden crown of honor bright.

And flowers that deck life's broad
Our feet may press some fallow field
For many sorry, sunless days.
But if our souls are sure and strong,
And work in unison with good,
And wage the fight with sin and wrong,
That come to tempt our angle mood;
The will of God shall be our will;
The now and then shall blend in ono;
All doubts and qnptionings grow still,
And what is best be gladly done.
And, oh! bow sweet if we oan hear
The reapers, when life's sun drops low,
Singing in joy as home they bear
The harvest we have toiled to sow.
