Columbus in the soul of man
Is soul of progress, too.
If you would do the best you can
Let heroes sail in you.
Be not dismayed by those who doubt
The light of progress new;
Your dreamer’s flame will not go out
As long as you are you.
Just be yourself, heroic, strong,
Each way and day you are;
Your lips will sing the sovereign song,
“Ahead, my earth, my star!”
