Know this! there is nothing can harm you
    If you are at peace with your soul.
Know this, and the knowledge shall arm you
    With courage and strength to the goal.
Your spirit shall break every fetter,
    And love shall cast out every fear.
And grander, and gladder, and better
    Shall be every added new year.

Yesterdays. By Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
London: Gay & Hancock, 1916.
