Dare to think, tho’ bigots frown;
Dare in words your thoughts express,
Dare to rise, though oft cast down;
Dare the wronged and scorned to bless.
Dare from custom to depart;
Dare the priceless pearl possess;
Dare to wear it next your heart;
Dare, when sinners curse, to bless.
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.
Do what conscience says is right;
Do what reason says is best;
Do with willing mind and heart;
Do your duty and be blest.
(Hymn # 427 in the 1901 Brethren Hymnal)
