Exude before thou tread
All confidence in thy being.
Shew not timid spirit.
Yield not to intimidation
And favor not like fears.
But with courage, step forth
To empower thy very essence
As enduring and reliable shield
In triumph over this pilgrimage.
For they that with thee likewise walk
Are better not in measure than thee,
Nor entertain they less trepidation.

For in firm embrace coupled with
Stalwart conviction and boldness,
Some in diligence proceed forward
To succeed and conquer still.

Therefore in all things
Embrace fortitude
… And stride.
