    To serve our loved ones, over passing ill
    To rise triumphant ; thus the perfect flower
    Of life shall come to fruitage : wealth amass
    For grandest giving ere the time be gone.

    Be brave to-day, the darkest night will pass,
    And golden rays will usher in the dawn:
    Who conquers now shall rule the coming years.
