An Inspiration

Credits:BenHeine

However the battle is ended,

Though proudly the victor comes

With fluttering flags and prancing nags

And echoing roll of drums.

Still truth proclaims this motto,

In letters of living light, –

No Question is ever settled,

Until it is settled right.

Though the heel of the strong oppressor

May grind the weak to dust,

And the voices of fame with one acclaim

May call him great and just,

Let those who applaud take warning,

And keep this motto in sight, –

No question is ever settled

Until it is settled right.

Let those who have failed take courage;

Tho’ the enemy seems to have won,

Tho’ his ranks are strong, if he be in the wrong

The battle is not yet done;

For, as sure as the morning follows

Credits:V-IMAgine-L

The darkest hour of the night,

No question is ever settled

Until it is settled right.

O man bowed down with labor!

O woman, young, yet old!

O heart oppressed in the toiler’s breast

And crushed by the power of gold!

Keep on with your weary battle

Against triumphant might;

Credits:Ezurum

No question is ever settled

Until it is settled right.
