    Sometimes we hardly know its there,
    Our guiding cabletow;
    If we go down the paths of right,
    Its hold we never know;
    But if we start the way that's wrong,
    It has a sudden way that's strong,
    And makes us heed its strength to lead
    Down paths we ought to go.

    And yet how good a thing to feel,
    How fine a thing to know,
    Then when the baser actions seek
    To wreck and overthrow,
    When worldly appetites deprave,
    Or lower passions would enslave,
    We can feel, like gripping steel,
    Our guiding cabletow.
