The Establishment of Social Justic

The Establishment of Social [unclear: Justic]

can secure the harmonious [unclear: developan] of human society. That justice [unclear: we] not yet attained in New Zealand [unclear: or] any other country.

In conclusion, let me say that [unclear: to] of you my words may seem unduly [unclear: p] mistic. It is not pessimism to [unclear: point] dangers, and at the same time to [unclear: po] out a way of escape from such [unclear: dan] I have tried to do both. I am not [unclear: read] pessimistic regarding the future. [unclear: I] lieve that "God's in His heaven," [unclear: and] that "all's right with the world." [unclear: E] God requires the co-operation of the [unclear: se] of men in order that His love and [unclear: just] may abound on the earth. I am [unclear: ce] dent that my appeal for your help [unclear: and] operation will not be in vain—

Love is and was my King and [unclear: Lord,] And will be, tho' as yet I [unclear: keep] Within his court on earth, and [unclear: sle]

Encompassed by his faithful [unclear: guard,]

And hear at times a sentinel

Who moves about from place to [unclear: pl] And whispers to the worlds of [unclear: spa]

In the deep night, that all is [unclear: well.]

And all is well, tho' faith and [unclear: form] Be sunder'd in the night of fear; I Well roars the storm to those than [unclear: h]

A deeper voice across the storm, [unclear: T]

Proclaiming social truth shall [unclear: spread] And justice, ev'n tho' thrice [unclear: again] The red fool-fury of the [unclear: Seine]

Should pile her barricades with [unclear: dead]
