Fear Not (Poem)

Fear not when men shall speak thee ill,
And place thy faults where all may see;
But only fear lest thou fulfill
Their prophecies concerning thee.

Fear not when darkness doth prevail,
And happiness seems out of reach;
But only fear lest thou shouldst fail
To learn the lessons God would teach.

Nor shalt thou long for ceaseless praise
(Seeking to 'scape another's blame);
But only strive, through all thy days,
To faithfully deserve the same.
