Be TrueThou must be true thyself,
If thou the truth would'st teach
Thy soul must overflow, if thou
Another's soul would'st reach:
It needs the overfiow of heart
To give the lips full speech.
Think truly, and thy thoughts
Shall the world's famine feed;
Speak truly, and each word of thine
Shall be a fruitful seed;
Live truly, and thy life shall be
A great and noble creed.
