When glory has its day the world will greet a rising sun
A world awoken to no fighting nor the sound of guns
Men will shake each others hand and live for love and peace
All countries will unite as one
The fighting will all cease.
Purchase not friends by gifts; when thou ceasest to give, such will cease to love.

Oh ! trust not, cling not, to the hope
Of constancy below ;
Earth’s fragile blossoms smile and droop.

Aye, even in life’s meanest things,
This is a World of Change.
Abdy, Maria Smith, d. 1867
