Courage, Brother, Courage

Representative Text

1 Have a little patience, brother, with thy load;
Thou wilt reach tomorrow, perchance, a smoother road.

Courage, brother, courage! For just beyond the sight,
At the highway’s turning, waits thy heart’s delight.

2 Look a little closer, brother, at thy way;
See the bright-faced blossoms that smile at thee today. [Refrain]

3 Look a little higher, at the prospect sweet,
And forget the roughness that lies beneath thy feet. [Refrain]

4 Listen, brother, listen! as you plod along,
Faintly from the distance there comes a happy song. [Refrain]
