Where Are You Going Great-heart?






Where are you going, Great-Heart,
With your eager face and your fiery grace?--
Where are you going, Great-Heart?

To fight a fight with all my might,
For Truth and Justice, God and Right,
To grace all Life with His fair Light.
Then God go with you, Great-Heart!

Where are you going, Great-Heart?
To beard the Devil in his den;
To smite him with the strength of ten;
To set at large the souls of men.
Then God go with you, Great-Heart!

Where are you going, Great-Heart?
To end the rule of knavery;
To break the yoke of slavery;
To give the world delivery.
Then God go with you, Great-Heart!

* * * *

Where are you going, Great-Heart?
To cleanse the earth of noisome things
To draw from life its poison-stings;
To give free play to Freedom's wings.
Then God go with you, Great-Heart!

Where are you going, Great-Heart?
To lift Today above the Past;
To make Tomorrow sure and fast;
To nail God's colors to the mast.
Then God go with you, Great-Heart!

Where are you going, Great-Heart?
To break down old dividing-lines;
To carry out My Lord's designs;
To build again His broken shrines.
Then God go with you, Great-Heart!

Where are you going, Great-Heart?
To set all burdened peoples free;
To win for all God's liberty;
To 'stablish His Sweet Sovereignty.
God goeth with you, Great-Heart!

JOHN OXENHAM.

*******************

Let it be your pride, therefore, to show all men everywhere, not only
what good soldiers you are, but also what good men you are, keeping
yourselves fit and straight in everything, and pure and clean through
and through. Let us set for ourselves a standard so high that it will
be a glory to live up to it and add a new laurel to the crown of
America. My affectionate confidence goes with you in every battle and
every test. God keep and guide you!

WOODROW WILSON.
