     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.
