LIFE OF BUCKLEY

HOPE ON.


Hope on!—Live on!—Hope to the last.
Though cowards shrink before the blast,
The man whose heart is firmly cast
Hopes on.

Hope on!—'Tis, often in the darkest night,
When all is lost to human sight,
There comes the brightest flash of light.
Hope on.

Hope on!—In deepest pain or misery,—
However great thine agony,—
Whate'er may be thy destiny,—
Hope on.

Live on!—Though unequal be the fight,
See,—Hope hoists high her signal light,
For ever cheering—ever bright.
Hope on.

Hope on!—Live on!—Hope to the last.
Though cowards shrink before the blast,
The man whose heart is firmly cast,
Hopes on—Lives on.
