Kingdom of the Free

Walk unafraid and bear a joyous load,

Adventure beckons all along the road.

Fear not the trail may end, but know this truth:

The twilight hours complete the dreams of youth.

Then comes the night when from its chrysalis

The soul steps forth to cross the last abyss--

And finds beyond, a sphere devoid of sorrow;

For death leads onward to a new tomorrow.

The spirit, eagle-pinioned, stands upon

Celestial heights to greet the glorious dawn,

And sees the light of immortality

Illuminate the Kingdom of the Free.
