I turn from your altars and arches And die mocking of steeples and domes To join in the long, weary -marches Of the ones ye have robbed .of their homes. I I shate in the sorrow and crosses Of the naked, the hungry » and cold, And dearer to me are their losses Than your gains and your idols of gold, 1 will wither the might ...
