Julia Ward Howe, you helped our world's great need.
Your passion for the truth still marches on.
You worked that peace and justice be made real.
Will we today still sing your freedom song?

You struggled to give women their just due:
the right to vote, not just to stay at home.
Your efforts helped them realize that they
could organize ?? their freedom they could own.

For every mother you proclaimed a day
to help us celebrate our unity.
"Arise, all women who have hearts," and work
to make the dream of peace reality!
