If you have courage

If you have courage... If you have courage... You will, open your eyes If you have courage... You will not believe all their lies If you have courage... You will get up when you stumble If you have courage... You will always try to stay humble If you have courage... You will begin on your destination If you have courage... You will always humbly accept direction If you have courage... You will always open your mind If you have courage... Peace and happiness you will find If you have courage... You will try to understand others If you have courage... You will see all men as your brothers If you have courage... You will, try to see my point of view If you have courage... You will, better understand you If you have courage... You will, search for the truth If you have courage... You will not allow despising of your youth If you have courage... You will examine all the facts If you have courage... You will defend the truth from all attacks If you have courage... You will not follow the crowd If you have courage... You will testify out loud If you have courage... You will seek answers to your questions If you have courage... You will accept them without hesitation If you have courage... You will confess your faith in God If you have courage... You will not care when they call you odd If you have courage... You will understand why you believe If you have courage... You will not be easily deceived If you have courage... You will stand by your convictions If you have courage... You will help others with their contradictions If you have courage... You will not fear impending disaster If you have courage... You will have already obeyed God as your master Do you have courage? John Derek Hamilton December 08,2016
