|"I'll Fight" (1912)
|This is an extract from General William Booth's last public address, given on May 9th 1912|
While women weep as they do now, I’ll fight;
while little children go hungry as they do now, I’ll fight;
while men go to prison, in and out, in and out, as they do now, I’ll fight;
while there is a drunkard left,
while there is a poor lost girl on the streets,
while there remains one dark soul without the light of God,
I’ll fight – I’ll fight to the very end.
