Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And departing, leave behind us
Footprints in the sands of time.
Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing oâ€™er lifeâ€™s solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.
Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.
