[Written for the Sentinel.]


Resolved to live the truth I know,
And by my words and deeds to show
To those in sickness, doubt, and fear
That God is Love and God is near,—

One Father-Mother Love divine,
Whose presence in each heart doth shine,—
And that His allness understood
Makes of all men one brotherhood.

Resolved to think more lovingly
Of all I meet or hear or see,
So that my thoughts may cheer and bless
Some sad hearts in their loneliness.

Resolved to speak for Truth to all
The claims of error, great and small;
Since Truth by its omnipotence
'Gainst error is a sure defence.

Resolved that all my deeds shall be
Like his, whose loving ministry
Through all the ages shall abide,
An inspiration and a guide.
