Poetry of Kansas

Truth Will Triumph.

When gossips' talk and traitor's scheming,
      And jealous fiends on evil bent,
With basest vices unredeeming,
      Brand the names of the innocent;
When hope's bright sun seems nearly setting,
      The future dim and cloudy lies,
And you mere tired of life are getting,
      And tears of sorrow dim the eyes;
Cheer up, take courage, do not falter,
      Truth will triumph by and by,
Time all evil things will alter,
      Vice and wickedness must die.
