view page image(s) Woodrow Wilson. He gave his life for those he loved-The people of the commonwealth; He gave his strength, he gave his health; He gave his life for those he loved. He pled that freedom might obtain Throughout the land; he strove to raise The burden and the length of days, And bring a better hope again.  5 He faced the rising storm of war. And firmly held the Ship of State, Until the purpose consummate One people welded, near and far He drove a despot from his throne,  10 And called a nation to new birth; For brotherhood of a man on earth He stood and fought, and fought alone. His mind was keen as burnished steel, Like molten iron his anger flamed. 15 And burned the traitor who profaned His love for gain, and stood revealed. And in secrets of his heart, Like flowers which bloom in forest glen, He was the most beloved of men 20 To those who, like him dwelt apart In spirit from the market place And crowded halls and acenes of strife And sought the finer, better life And craved the blessings of God's grace. 25 Nor life, nor death, was aught to him His splendid purpose stood serene, Until he gained the heights supreme With prophet and wiht searaphim. He held the faith; the path who trod 30 Was rough and thorny, yet he fought Like one by destiny besought, And kept his covenant with God.
