If your journey turns so dark
you could lose your way,
let the truth lend you hope
and good light.

Should you stumble, slip, or miss,
lift yourself up and go.
Always know that the dawn
follows night.

Draw force from your faith!

Invest in your quest,
though most paths seem to lead

Ascend, then prevail!

Come face the things you now must see!
Embrace your place in history!

Perfect the best of what could be!
Create your greatest destiny!
