When You Fight

When you fight through the night
‘Cause you know you are right,
There is dawn, there is day, there is light!

When you act for the true
In the deep best of you,
There is sun, there is shine, there is dew!

And the force in your mind
Grows so great that you find,
When you know what you know to the core,

That the strength of your stand
Stirs up arm and grips hand
As in pride you fling wide every door!

Every door of the free,
To the Hall Liberty,
Though they’re locked and they’re barred and they’re blocked,

Without doubt will turn out
With a man-mental clout
When the bad are full-banished and rocked!

When your judgment goes straight
Through the heart of low hate
And the base can’t pretend they are good,

But in mirrors must face
They’ve no hope, not a trace,
Of hiding from fear as they would,

Then the daydreams of life
Will glow gloriously rife
With the facts of your future in hand,

And you’ll breathe the clean air
Of your triumphing, there,
On this man-loving earth where you stand!

Then be true to the true,
And keep friendship with you,
Though the end may be far from your sight,

And though eve comes on dark
Hold in eye that high mark
That asks all your spirit to fight.

When you act to pursue
All the bright best of you,
There is sun, there is shine, there is dew!

When you fight through the night
‘Cause you know you are right,
There is dawn, there is day. there is light!
