Step up
Stand ever firm
Be ready for the fray 
Courageous for the cause you hold
Never
Never
Flee or from battle runaway
Find your own strength within
Lesser deeds now
Eschew

Padre

This month’s theme is:

“…In the world’s broad field of battle, In the bivouac of Life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle! Be a hero in the strife…”
