Poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox


They Shall Not Win


Whatever the strength of our foes is now,
   Whatever it may have been,
This is our slogan, and this our vow-
   They shall not win, they shall not win.

Though out of the darkness they call the aid
   Of the evil forces of Sin,
We utter our slogan unafraid-
   They shall not win, they shall not win.

We know we are right, and know they are wrong,
   So to God above and within-
We make our vow and we sing our song
   They shall not win, they shall not win.

It rises over the shriek of shell,
   And over the cannonsТ din:
Our slogan shall scatter the hosts of Hell-
   They shall not win, they shall not win.
