Representative Text

1 March on! brave youth, the field of strife,
With peril, fraught, before thee lies;
March on! the battle plain of life
Shall yield thee yet a glorious prize.
Unfurl thy banner to the breeze,
Emblazon truth on every fold,
And, nobly shunning selfish ease,
Tread down the wrong, the right uphold.

2 March on! and in thy glowing heart,
The reveille of hope shall beat!
March on! and bear that glorious part,
Which renders victory doubly sweet.
Press forward to the battle field,
And bear thee bravely, noble youth:
Gird on thy armor, take thy shield,
And boldly strike for God and truth!
