Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called He Seas.@Genesis 1:9-10

Dare to be 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.

Refrain

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

Dare to be right! dare to be true!
Other men’s failures can never save you;
Stand by your conscience, your honor, your faith,
Stand like a hero, and battle till death.

Refrain

Dare to be 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.

Refrain

Dare to be 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.

Refrain

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

Refrain
