Rise! for the day is passing,
     And you lie dreaming on;

Rise! for the day is passing,
     And you lie dreaming on;
The others have buckled their armor,
     And forth to the fight are gone:
A place in the ranks awaits you,
     Each man has some part to play;
The Past and Future are looking
     In the face of the stern To-day.”
