Thou must be true thyself,
If thou the truth wouldst teach;

      Thou must be true thyself,
      If thou the truth wouldst teach;
Thy soul must overflow, if thou
      Another's soul would'st reach!
It needs the overflow of heart
      To give the lips full speech.

      Think truly, and thy thoughts
      Shall the world's famine feed;
Speak truly, and each word of thine
      Shall be a fruitful seed;
Live truly, and thy life shall be
      A great and noble creed.

~ Horatius Bonar
