Encouragement of the Day

hero1

Here’s a hand to the boy who has courage

To do what he knows to be right;

When he falls in the way of temptation,

He has a hard battle to fight.

Who strives against self and his comrades

Will find a most powerful foe;

All honor to him if he conquers–

A cheer for the boy who says “No!”

 

There’s many a battle fought daily

The world knows nothing about;

There’s many a brave little soldier

Whose strength puts a legion to rout.

 

And he who fights sin single-handed

Is more of a hero, I say,

Than he who leads soldiers to battle,

And conquers by arms in the fray.

 

Be steadfast, my boy, when you’re tempted

And do what you know to be right;

Stand firm by the colors of manhood,

And you will overcome in the fight.

“The Right” be your battle-cry ever,

In waging the warfare of life;

And God, who knows who are the heroes,

Will give you the strength for the strife.
