144b. Dare to do Right! Dare to be True!

1 Dare to do right! Dare to be true!
You have a work that no other can do;
Do it so bravely, so kindly, so well,
Angels will hasten the story to tell.

Chorus:
Dare, dare, dare to do right!
Dare, dare, dare to be true!
Dare, dare to be true!
Dare to be true!

2 Dare to do right! dare to be true!
Other mens' failures can never save you.
Stand by your conscience, your honor, your faith;
Stand like a hero, and battle till death. [Chorus]

3 Dare to do right! dare to be true!
God, who created you, cares for you, too;
Treasures the tears that his striving ones shed,
Counts and protects every hair of your head. [Chorus]

4 Dare to do right! dare to be true!
Keep the great judgment-seat always in view;
Look at your work as you'll look at it then,
Scanned by Jehovah, and angels, and men. [Chorus]

5 Dare to do right! dare to be true!
Jesus, your Saviour, will carry you through;
City, and mansion, and throne all in sight,
Can you not dare to be true and do right? [Chorus]
