'The slothful man saith, There is a lion in the way; a lion is in the street.'--PROVERBS xxvi. 13.

There are no lions in the street;

No lions in the way. Go seek the goal, thou slothful soul,

Awake, awake, I say.

Thou dost but dream of obstacles;

In God's great lexicon, That word illstarred, no page has marred;

Press on, I say, press on.

Nothing can keep thee from thine own

But thine own slothful mind. To one who knocks, each door unlocks;

And he who seeks, shall find.
