“Study to show yourself approved”
(2 Timothy 2:15 )
Study to show yourself approved before Truth;
O, man, behold the day of Truth shines forth!
Behold, the dawn of wisdom breaks before you,
Truth is revealed; you need but claim your worth.
Study to show yourself approved before Life;
No longer must an illness claim your space;
Behold, O man, your health is sure and stable,
Life knows no sickness; man abides in grace.
Study to show yourself approved before Love;
Each fellowman your brother and your friend;
Why fret your heart with needless care and sorrow,
Acknowledge Love that every heart may blend.
Study to show yourself approved before God;
Life, Truth, and Love your strength along the way;
Man is the perfect image and reflection,
Therefore, make God y your Guardian, Guide and Stay.
