Meter: 8 8 8 8 8 8
Topic: Virtues, improvement, honesty

1.
We seek after the best in life,
The honest, the true, and the chaste.
Above the throes of mortal strife,
So that we do our lives waste.

We seek through every mortal day,
The virtues that can ever stay.

2.
We seek after holy treasures,
Virtuous and benevolent.
The bounty of heaven’s measure,
Rejecting the malevolent.

We seek through every mortal day,
The virtues that can ever stay.

3.
We seek to do good to all men
Believing and hoping all things,
Enduring, enduring again,
That a good report we may bring.

We seek through every mortal day,
The virtues that can ever stay.
