17 ページ - WHEN wilt Thou save the people ? O God of mercy, when ? Not kings and lords, but nations ! Not thrones and crowns, but men ! Flowers of thy heart, O God, are they ; Let them not pass, like weeds away — Their heritage a sunless day. God save the people ! Shall crime bring crime for ever, Strength aiding still the strong ? Is it thy will, O Father, That man shall toil for wrong? "No," say thy mountains; "No," thy skies; Man's clouded sun shall brightly rise, And songs be heard instead of sighs.
