Think noble thoughts if you would noble be;
Pure thoughts will make a heart of purity;
Kind thoughts will make you good, and glad thoughts gay,
For like your thoughts your life will be always.
What e'er is true and reverend and just,
Think o'er these things, and be like them you must;
Of good report, of lovely things and pure,
Think, and your mind such nectar shall secure.
Thank much of God and you shall like Him be,
In words of faith and hope and charity;
Protect His image from all foul abuse,
And keep the temple holy for His use.
