Bliss Carman (Блисс Кармен)

In the Day of Battle

In the day of battle,
In the night of dread,
Let one hymn be lifted,
Let one prayer be said.

Not for pride of conquest,
Not for vengeance wrought,
Nor for peace and safety
With dishonour bought!

Praise for faith in freedom,
Our fighting fathers' stay,
Born of dreams and daring,
Bred above dismay.

Prayer for cloudless vision,
And the valiant hand,
That the right may triumph
To the last demand.

Bliss Carman’s other poems:

  1. The Givers of Life
  2. Spring’s Saraband
  3. The Garden of Dreams
  4. The Gift
  5. A Creature Catechism
