Courage brother poem

Courage Brother (Poem)
Courage Brother, do not stumble
Though thy path be dark as night;
There’s a star to guide the humble
Trust in God, and do the right.
Let the road be rough and dreary,
And its end far out of sight,
Foot it bravely, strong or weary,
Trust in God, and do the right.
Perish policy and cunning,
Perish all that fears the light;
Whether winning, whether losing,
Trust in God, and do the right.
Trust no party, sect or faction,
Trust no leaders in the fight:
But in every word and action,
Trust in God, and do the right.
Trust no lovely forms of passion,
Foes may look like angels bright,
Trust no custom, school or fashion,
Trust in God, and do the right.
Simple rule and safest guiding,
Inward peace and inward might;
Star upon our path abiding,
Trust in God, and do the right.
Some will hate thee, some will love thee,
Some will flatter, some will slight;
Cease from man, and look above thee,
Trust in God, and do the right.
