| carry on, my soul | 

  

 Carry on! Carry on!

Fight the good fight and true;

Believe in your mission, greet life with a cheer;

There’s big work to do, and that’s why you are here.

Carry on! Carry on!

 Let the world be the better for you;

And at last when you die, let this be your cry!

Carry on, my soul! Carry on!
