Poem by Bliss Carman
In the Day of Battle
In the day of battle, In the night of dread, Let one hymn be lifted, Let one prayer be said. Not for pride of conquest, Not for vengeance wrought, Nor for peace and safety With dishonour bought! Praise for faith in freedom, Our fighting fathers' stay, Born of dreams and daring, Bred above dismay. Prayer for cloudless vision, And the valiant hand, That the right may triumph To the last demand.
