9. Dare to Do Right

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.

Refrain:
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]
