Representative Text

1 Dare to think, tho’ others frown;
Dare in words your tho’ts express;
Dare to rise tho’ oft cast down;
Dare the wronged and scorned to bless.

Do what conscience says is right,
Do what reason says is best,
Do with all your mind and heart,
Do your duty and be blest.

2 Dare from custom to depart;
Dare the priceless pearl possess;
Dare to wear it next your heart;
Dare, when others curse, to bless. [Refrain]

3 Dare forsake what you deem wrong;
Dare to walk in wisdom’s way;
Dare to give where gifts belong;
Dare God’s precepts to obey. [Refrain]
