Sometimes in Harpers Ferry I feel the presence of John Brown and his men

I still feel their fear as the troops close in

I know the rage of Brown that never was extinguished

The rage and love that drove a man who hated slavery more than he loved life

Walk on the grounds of Storer College, feel DuBois and know he still walks there on the heights

Above the Shenandoah and now above the evil of this day and it's strife

Ol Brown and DuBois answered The Spirit that called them to their fights

Part of their answers were in Harpers Ferry

And part of their answers are with us. What will we do in days rife

With hate and the evil of anger misplaced

Will we stand and struggle for all of us and light and life.
