Alternate Author Name(s): Leigh, Arbor; Guggenberger, Mrs. Ignatz; Bevington, L. S.
Subject(s): Peace

Peace on our earth! Men reconciled
To Law that bids them be;
O holy freedom! final faith!
O sacred certainty!
I sometimes think the road to it
Lies through Gethsemane.

And yet the young are with us too,
Bold from the very first;
Dear lads and maidens full of will
The golden cage to burst;
Alert to note the living springs
That slake the whole world's thirst.

The very goal we touch at last,
The haven of the free;
Ah, comrades! you who understand,
Sing in your heart with me --
"Thou Death, where now thy poisoned sting?
Where, Grave thy victory?"
