NUMBER:7362
AUTHOR:James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)
QUOTATION:God, give us Peace! not such as lulls to sleep,
  But sword on thigh and brow with purpose knit!
And let our Ship of State to harbor sweep,
  Her ports all up, her battle lanterns lit,
And her leashed thunders gathering for their leap.
ATTRIBUTION:The Washers of the Shroud.
