Good Conscience Will Prevail
I will help you tell them,
Dear stranger, (really a brother),
That their savage rudeness
Did not impress you
Or make you revere their words and ways
As things of a people exalted.
I will even help you convince them
That their hurtful ways
Insulted the Life of all of us,
If you will join me in teaching them
From the Love within themselves,
And allow That
To be their only punisher.
Their arrogance has been mighty
But their conscience is mightier,
And their fresh resolve is trustworthy:
To uplift and enlighten
All lands and all peoples,
Even as parts of the same Body of Life
That we each worship
As the Self of the Life of All.
