Having done all to stand, stand.
The victory lies not in preparation.
Though preparation lays the foundation,
the victory comes by taking the stand.
Having done all to love, love.
Conviction lies not in our feelings.
Though feelings may transcend to dealings,
conviction comes by expressing the love.
Having done all to believe, believe.
Reward lies not in hearing the word.
Though the word be the battle sword,
reward comes only to those that believe.
Having prepared your heart is never enough.
Having felt the need to love is not sufficient.
Having heard the word one may still be deficient.
What wilt thou do when the road turns rough
