  As there is wrong to right.

    So long as faith with freedom reigns
  And loyal hope survives,
And gracious charity remains
  To leaven lowly lives;
While there is one untrodden tract

  Life is worth living still.
          Is Life worth living.

  Creatures of one great law, indeed;
Bound by strong roots, the splendid flower,—
  Swept by great seas, the drifting seed!
