There is service at the battlefront,
a Calling to be sure,
though not for God and Glory,
that old lie from days of yore.
Those who served and did their best,
they have no fear of shame;
it is those who failed to stem the tide
of war who own the blame.
We others, though we have not fought,
can do as good a deed,
can create a better future,
one that knows not battle’s rede.
Our cause is just, our slogan that
no one should fear war’s pain.
We’ll win the greatest victory if
we ne’er need fight again.
