This man once dared to hold a glorious dream,
And as among earth's dreamless men He walked,
His holy dream was ridiculed and mocked. --
To dreamless souls all dreamers foolish seem. --
Yet did He spin His dream and boldly said
That on this earth, our common heritage,
Some day would reign the blessed golden age
When men no more were given stones for bread;
When neither color, creed, nor mark of race
Would set a man from fellowmen apart,
When prejudice no more would rule the heart,
But Love transfigure every human face.
He dreamed this dream two thousand years ago,
Yet we plod on so dreamlessly and slow.
