The soul grows strong in noble strife

This is the law forever

Be it the motto of thy life

Endeavor, Oh, endeavor

Strive for he mastery of self

From All low aims to sever

From passion, pride, and love of self

Endeavor and endeavor

Let thy mind entertain the good

Corrupt Guests Harbor never

Feed on high thought—‘tis angel’s food

Endeavor ,still endeavor!

Spurn all the blandishments of sin

But follow virtue ever

Her smile ‘tis blessedness to win

Endeavor, aye, endeavor!
