Страница 9 - THERE'S a good time coming, boys, A good time coming : We may not live to see the day, But earth shall glisten in the ray Of the good time coming. Cannon balls may aid the truth, But thought's a weapon stronger ; We'll win our battle by its aid ; Wait a little longer.
Страница 7 - CLEAR THE WAY. MEN of thought ! be up, and stirring Night and day : Sow the seed — withdraw the curtain — CLEAR THE WAY! Men of action, aid and cheer them, As ye may ! There's a fount about to stream, There's a light about to beam, There's a warmth about to glow, There's a flower about to blow ; There's a midnight blackness changing Into gray; Men of thought and men of action, CLEAR THE WAY...
Страница 9 - There's a good time coming, boys, A good time coming : The pen shall supersede the sword ; And right, not might, shall be the lord In the good time coming.
Страница 10 - Wait a little longer. There's a good time coming, boys, A good time coming : War in all men's eyes shall be, A monster of iniquity In the good time coming.

Страница 8 - Aid the dawning, tongue and pen ; Aid it, hopes of honest men ; Aid it, paper — aid it, type — Aid it, for the hour is ripe, And our earnest must not slacken Into play. Men of thought and men of action. Clear the way ! Lo ! a cloud's about to vanish From the day ; And a brazen wrong to crumble Into clay.
Страница 5 - The stars are clear above me ; scarcely one Has dimmed its rays, in reverence to the sun ; But yet I see, on the horizon's verge, Some fair, faint streaks, as if the light would surge.
Страница 23 - They were days when the gallows stood black in the way The larger the town, the more plentiful they ; When Law never dreamed it was good to relent, Or thought it less wisdom to kill than prevent ; When Justice herself, taking Law for her guide, Was never appeased till a victim had died ; And the stealer of sheep, and the slayer of men, Were strung up together — again and again.
Страница 11 - sa good time coming, boys, A good time coming : The people shall be temperate, And shall love instead of hate, In the good time coming. They shall use, and not abuse. And make all virtue stronger; The reformation has begun ; — Wait a little longer. There 'sa good time coming...
