When we travel life's highway
Who's counting the cost
As we follow like sheep to the fold?
All our hearts seem content
At not getting lost
Yet we're happy to go where we're told.
We should explore all life's footpaths
And climb all its stiles
To "an air that no longer kills"
Where our lives and our freedoms
Shine plainly for miles
Past "yon farms" and "lost spires" and "blue hills".
