Where, oh, where does our anchor lay?
Is it in the joy of a coming day?
No. The strength we seek is protected
By a fortress that has been erected.
We must battle for it at every hour,
And in victory shall it give us power.

Because the will to survive is in constant struggle,
And the voice of reason we must always juggle
