Full Text

1 Quit you like men, be strong, be strong;
There’s a burden to bear, there’s a grief to share;
There’s a heart that breaks ’neath a load of care—
But fare ye forth with a song,
But fare ye forth with a song.

2 Quit you like men, be strong, be strong;
There’s a battle to fight, there’s a wrong to right;
There’s a God who blesses the good with might—
So fare ye forth with a song,
So fare ye forth with a song.

3 Quit you like men, be strong, be strong;
There’s a work to do, there’s a world to make new;
There’s a call for men who are brave and true—
Speed on! speed on with a song,
Speed on! speed on with a song.

4 Quit you like men, be strong, be strong;
There’s a year of grace, there’s a God to face,
There’s another heat in the great world race—
Speed on! speed on with a song,
Speed on! speed on with a song.
