JAMES L. ORR.

1. Come, brothers and sisters assembled tonight,
To honor and strengthen the cause we avow,
Proclaim it abroad to the world in its pride,

That glory and honor may follow the plow.

REFRAIN.
For Patrons must toil, and toiling be blest,
A sure reward their labors will attain
Who never wearies, never longs for rest.
O sad heart, cease repining.

2. True worth is in being not seeming to be,
Our deeds are the measure by which we are known,
We cannot win honors till worthy we be,
Nor hope to be reapers before we have sown.

REFRAIN.

3. Though features be bronzed by exposure and sun,
Though hands may be hardened by diligent task,
The heart may retain its integrity still,
And Faith, Hope and Charity triumph at last.

REFRAIN.
