Dare to contend
without being contentious.

Dare to preserve truth
without hurting people.

Dare to love
and to be charitable.

Let us put our chin a little higher and our knees a little lower,
and let us look a little further unto the throne of God for Jesus Christ, who sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.

Let us be courageous
but tender;
but kind.
And let us pray in the Holy Spirit and keep ourselves in the love of God,
building up ourselves in the most holy faith,
and win all those we can
till the day of the glory and the song.
