by John Oxenham
O Exiled Hearts--for you, for you--
Love still can find the way!
_Hear the voices of the women on the road_!
O Shadowed Lives--for you, for you--
Hope hath not lost her ray!
_Hear the laughter of the children on the road_!
O Gloomy Night--for you, for you--
Dawn tells of coming day!
_Hear the clink of breaking fetters on the road_!
O Might sans Right--for you, for you--
The feet of crumbling clay!
_Hear the slow, sure tread of Freedom on the road_!
