Transcript from original newspaper article: -


Never doubt a righteous cause,
Go ahead,
Throw yourself completely in,
Conscience sharpens all your laws,
Manfully through thick and thin,
Go ahead.

Do not ask who’ll go with you –
Go ahead,
Numbers! Spurn the coward’s plea;
It there be but one or two,
Single-handed though it be,
Go ahead.

Though before you mountains rise,
Go ahead.
Scale them, certainly you can;
Let them proudly dare the skies,
What are mountains to a man?
Go ahead.

Though fierce waters round you dash,
Go ahead,
Let no hardship baffle you;
Though the heavens roar and flash,
Still undaunted firm and true,
Go ahead.

Go Ahead
