[43] Let it go forth! The millions who are gazing
     Sadly upon us from afar shall smile,
And unto God devout thanksgiving raising,
     Bless us the while.

Oh for your ancient freedom, pure and holy,
     For the deliverance of a groaning earth,
For the wronged captive, bleeding, crushed, and lowly,
     Let it go forth!

Sons of the best of fathers! will ye falter
     With all they left ye perilled and at stake?
Ho! once again on Freedom's holy altar
     The fire awake!

Prayer-strengthened for the trial, come together,
     Put on the harness for the moral fight,
And, with the blessing of your Heavenly Father,
     Maintain the right!
