A Juniors Psalm of Life
Tell me not with joyful voices
Life at College is a dream,
For the man must fail who squanders
Hours he can ne'er redeem.
Life is real, life is earnest,
A degree is not our goal;
But to triumph in life's battle
Is the aim of every soul.
Lessons long and work unending
Stretch before us all through life;
We must now make preparations
Lest we falter in the strife.
When you think of hard tasks coming,
And you'd like to shirk the fight,
Look to those who went before us;
Set to work with all your might.
"Deeds not Words;" let this our motto
Be through all the coming years,
For by these the world shall judge us
At the close of our careers.
Let us, then, be up and doing;
Study hard and study late;
Never shirking, always working,
All must labor; 'tis their fate.
