The Wrong shall fail, The Right Prevail

I love the old Christmas carol, I heard the bells on Christmas Day, which is actually a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.  I especially like the final stanza.   We always sing the final stanza louder and with much enthusiasm.  

GOD IS NOT DEAD, NOR DOTH HE SLEEP

Everything is going to be ok.   The nation will not fail under Trump.  I will not fail under my current circumstances. God is good and has a plan for me.

And in despair I bowed my head;

"There is no peace on earth," I said;
"For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:

"God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men."
