In hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before times eternal. — Titus 1:2
Truth is sensitive and jealous of the least encroachment of its sacredness.
— A. Bronson Alcott.
Faith that withstood the shocks of toil and time,
Hope that defied despair,
Patience that conquered care,
And loyalty whose courage was sublime;
Teaching us how to seek the highest goal,
To earn the true success;
To live to love, to bless,
And make death proud to take a royal soul.
— Louisa M. Alcott.
Nor is it
Wiser to weep a true occasion lost,
But trim our sails, and let old bygones be.
— Alfred Tennyson.
Heavenly Father, I pray that I may live in truth; and without fear of life or death live content in the faith of eternal life. Amen.
