Courage! What if the snows are deep,
And what if the hills are long and steep,
And the days are short and the nights are long,
And the good are weak and the bad are strong.
Courage! The snow is a field of play,
And the longest hill has a well-worn way,
There are songs that shorten the longest night,
There’s a day when wrong shall be ruled right,
So courage! Courage! ‘Tis never so far
From a plodded path to a shining star.
