Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.@Proverbs 3:5–6

O Christian youth, arise,
And gird thee for the fight;
Put on the shining shield of faith,
Trust God, and do the right.

Be strong, thro’ grace divine,
Walk ever in the light;
Repose no confidence in self,
Trust God, and do the right.

Fear not, for One is near
To show His power and might;
In all thy conflicts with the foe,
Trust God, and do the right.

Press onward in His name,
And in His word delight;
Stand firm for Christ and for His Church,
Trust God, and do the right.
