Forward Ho!

Charles Harpur 1813 (Windsor) – 1868 (Australia)



Forward ho! Forward ho! Soldiers of liberty,
Hope on; fight on; till man’s whole race shall be
  Free of all good under heaven’s wide dome.
And doubt not, the earth that has grown old in sorrow
Shall grow young again in the light of that morrow
  Predestined to make her fraternity’s home.
Forward ho! Forward ho! Lovers of truth and good!
Think on; write on; till earth’s whole herohood
  Stand in one faith under heaven’s wide dome;
And shout to behold all the hilltops adorning
With sunflowers of glory the glow of that morning
  Predestined to mark her fraternity’s home.
