THERE'S A GOOD TIME COMING
3  There's a good time-coming, boys,
A good time coming,
A good time coming; War in all men's eyes shall be A monster of iniquity,
In the good time coming, Nations shall not quarrel then
To prove which is the stronger; Nor slaughter men for glory's sake;
Wait a little longer.
4  There's a good time coming, boys,
A good time coming,
A good time coming; Shameful rivalries of creed Shall not make the martyr bleed,
In the good time coming. Religion shall be shorn of pride,
And flourish all the stronger; And charity shall trim her lamp,
Wait a little longer.
5  There's a good time coming, boys,
A good time coming,
A good time coming; And a poor man's family, Shall not be his misery,
In the good time coming; Every child shall be a help
To make his right arm stonger; The happier he, the more .he has;
Wait a little longer.
6  There's a good time coming, boys,
A good time coming,
A good time coming; Little children shall not toil Under, or above the soil
In the good time coming, But shall play in healthful fields,
Till limbs and mindsgrow stronger; And every one shall read and write;
Wait a little longer.
7  There's a good time coming, boys,
A good time coming,
A good time coming; The people shall be temperate, And shall love instead of hate,
In the good time coming. They shall use, and not abuse,
And make all virtue stronger; The reformation has begun;
Wait a little longer.
8  There's a good time coming, boys,
A good time coming,
A good time coming; Let us aid it all we can, Every woman, ever)' man,
The good time coming, Smallest helps, if rightly given,
Make the impulse stronger;' 'Twill be strong enough some day;
Wait .a little longer.
