Columbus

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!”
