Eyes of brown and blue and gray

Cast upon sunset of day

To where it fades, from sight it’s gone

The night tis’ long, from dusk to dawn

The morn’ shines bright for all to see

Through eyes of green each man dares be

Stand silent, walk tall through fields of wheat

Earth’s kinsmen hail forth in victory so sweet

From mountains West the rivers flow

Days wander on with passing know

Run swift, run free though wild winds blow

Today is here yet far to go

The homeland calls with each step took

See firm with eyes, stand ground though shook

Not sinking nor slumbering, lest all not be held

Toward victory to victory, I pray thee, Do Well
