To The Human
you, my fellowman, I give my praise,
To laud you for courageous battles run;
With thanks today your flag I proudly raise.
Intrepid man, you've braved the scorching sun
Of hell as onward, onward to the prize
You plucked obstruction from your path and won.
Amidst your brothers' staunch, supportive cries,
Through endless nights of thunder, fire, and
Your fearless spirit rises, soars, and flies
To burn your name forever on life's page.
O noble soul, remain steadfast and true,
With God your compass, hope and faith your
O brother-sister mine, what can I do?
I am so proud to be a part of you!
