To know, whatever battles we have lost,

Whatever victories missed on our life's field,

That we have fought as bravely as the most,

And till our strength forsook us, would not yield-

This is our victory.


To know, whatever wreaths deck other brows,

However loud the peen, long the train,

That we have steadfast stood to all our vows,

And though to death are wounded, they remain-

This is our victory.


Good Cheer
