We’re flying on and up and on,
Touching the far with the near.
No gods to hold us down for those
Who have no future cheer.
We’ve thought and knowledge, skill,
Great courage facing new,
Joyous fire of exerting ill
To do and do and do.
We’re stepping close to the goal—
Light the near with the far.
No gods, but only man’s good soul
To wreathe a dream on a star!
