Hang on

hang on dear
brother, never let go.for
tomorrow is come, and with it
comes snow.hang on dear
tears, rain not now.for what lies
beyound a second is but a glorious crown.hang on dear
face, never let go of thy
brightness, for the night will
fade away as the day reveals
the sun.hang on dear
soldier for the war is not over.your bravery is much
admired as you never say
never.hang on dear mind, be not
the least dismayed.for in you
lies a vision...a vision already
made.hang on dear foot, dont think ye missed thy path.for
path ye thread is a path
beyound all a land
beyound all land, Hang on, Hang
on, Hang on

And learn to chaunt a goddess praise;
Ye wood-nymphs, let your voices be
Employ'd to serve her deity:
