COME FORTH, COME FORTH
The following verses appear in the September number'of 'The Navy.' They are by our much-esteemed and respected citizen Mrs Rachel S. Reynolds, who is at present in London. Tho Fame number contains a verb?.tim report of Mrs Reynolds's address delivered at tli© annual meeting of the Oiago branch of the Navy League on April 24: Sound loud the trumpet, blare tho Truth, Echo it far, from pole io polo; Er.thuso our manhood, stir our youth, Enkindle white heat in their soul. Till all shall spring forth, one in aim, And tattle do for Cause most just, Upholding ail for which Cbrfct came, Dominion over power and lust. For Armageddon, fierce and strong, Is roaring, shrieking all around Those noble Allies, who for long Have stoutly hold each strip of ground. Come forth, then, como in God's grwtx name, I Not Empires' fates alone lie hw; j Peace, justice, mtrcy, honest fame, And all that men in heart bold dear. Are now involved in tragic grips, The whole world's we'.faro is at 6take; For deeds aro done winch pale tho tips, For three, then, grim resolro wc take. To battle- to the bitter end. What our right hand con find to do We'll do with "all our raiffht, and send Our supplications up—and through Those channels sure, that cannot fail. Go! Shatter evil with this thought, The spirit in you shall (nrova.il, And every wrong' be brought, io nought. This is the Truth that ages long Has been our ration's strongest force, Protecting right, subduing wrong. Our Fountain Head—Eternal Source.
