Idleness ever despaireth, bewaileth;
Keep the watch wound, for the dark rust assaileth.

A thousand times, by treacherous foes,
Than once accuse the innocent,
Or let suspicion mar repose.

Labor is rest
from the sorrow that greet us;
Rest from all petty vexations that meet us,
Rest from sin-promptings that ever entreat us,
Rest from the world-sirens that hire us to ill.
Work
and pure slumbers shall wait on thy pillow;
Work
thou shalt ride over Care's coming billow;
Lie not down wearied 'neath Woe's weeping willow!
Work with a stout heart and resolute will!

— Frances Sargent Osgood

Let thy great deeds be thy prayer to thy God.

A wanderer, weary of the way;
A stranger, without love's sweet claim
On any heart, go where I may!

Here with a loyal and heroic heart,
Bind we our lives.

The purest pearl may hide,
Trust me you'll find a heart of truth
Within that rough outside.
