Let not Truths remain Tongueless


Athens feared the cloutless Socrates,

Because he said what he had to say;

He drank the hemlock cheerfully,

And Athens is known by him today.

 

Wycliff wrote the word of god

In the English tongue;

Burnt at the stake, he is now

The English immortals among.

 

Copernicus found god’s own earth

Moving round the sun;

The truth of his discovery

Pushed back religion.

 

Darwin disastrously dislodged

The postulates of Creation;

Reviled, he remains our beacon light

To undefeated education.

 

Why may we then acquiesce tonguelessly

To the pulpit and the throne?

Darker the times the brighter

The light of truth has shone.
