Title: To Prove Ourselves

Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

Topic: endurance, obedience

1.

We have an opportunity

To prove ourselves below.

We can’t sin with impunity

And we must surely know

 

How we can walk the narrow path

That proves our great resolve

And leads to what the Father hath,

That will his work involve.

2.

We have responsibility

To use the light we know

According to ability

To struggle, then to grow.

 

This growth is the most vital part

Regardless of the soil,

For we must strive with all our heart

Our weaknesses to foil.

3.

We have been given clarity

Within this darkened vale.

We light the way with charity

And despite all prevail.

 

And when we share this borrowed light

It proves that we are pure

And gives us the empowered might

To faithfully endure.
