The principles by which I mean to live
Are very like the Holy Trinity,
For Father, Son and Holy Spirit give
A pattern to my own philosophy:
Where Father stands for Wisdom to acquire;
Son stands for Love, Compassion, Sacrifice;
And Spirit is the Joy that lifts us higher
Hence: Wisdom, Love and Joy, to be concise.
This is not my religion to believe
But mine to do, a practice to perform,
A way to live exalted, not to grieve,
The surest way to weather any storm:
To practice Wisdom, Love and Joy foremost
Serves best the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
