The Conquering Hero

The Conquering Hero

The Whigs retire, and Salisbury comes forth,
A fitting champion in a cause so just ;
He hears his country's call : he feels the worth
Of such deep confidence, such sacred trust.

It chose him after long and anxious thought ;
It chose him clearly, with united voice ;
It chose him in the hour of need—in short
It chose him when it had no other choice.

H. S. S.

Justice, No. 76, June 27, 1885, p. 5
