As life goes onward day by day,
Let each one to his conscience say
That flesh is weak but God is strong,
That right is right and wrong is wrong.
That I have found my workday flies,
But therein all my life’s hope lies.
That on life’s upward path I’ll run,
My face forever to the sun.
That I shall do my best today.
Not let one moment waste away;
And as I travel on life’s road
I’ll try to share a brother’s load.
That force has power, but love has more;
That peace is mightier that war;
That real success is only won
By deeds of kindness one has done.
