When those about us languish
In a sullen sea of doubt,
And the whole world seems in anguish,...
And hope, nowhere about;

Its then faith burns most brightly
With conviction’s brilliant glow,
While fears retreat contritely,
Vanquished by the confidence we know.

For our hope is not in inner strength,
Nor conceit at honors won.
Our valor not doomed to fail at length,
Our victory not contingent on what we’ve done.

Our joy is not reliant
On some gallantry we’ve shown.
We’ve no need to be compliant
To some distant impropriety we’ve known.

For our strength is in humility,
Not some valiant course we’ve trod,
But in simply doing justly,
Loving mercy, serving God. SC
