First Line: I believe in the ultimate justice of fate
Last Line: Is guidance enough for the conduct of men.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Justice; Racial Equality


I believe in the ultimate justice of Fate;
That the races of men front the sun in their turn;
That each soul holds the title to infinite wealth
In fee to the will as it masters itself;
That the heart of humanity sounds the same tone
In impious jungle, or sky-kneeling fane.
I believe that the key to the life-mystery
Lies deeper than reason and further than death.
I believe that the rhythmical conscience within
Is guidance enough for the conduct of men.
