Resolutions in a song

My resolution for ’08 is very simple.

It’s from a hymn my mother taught me when I was a child. I figured it’s straightforward, pragmatic yet important enough to commit to.

It’s the second stanza of W. Charter Piggott’s hymn “Heavenly Father, May thy blessing”

May we learn from this great story
All the arts of friendliness;
Truthful speech and honest action,
Courage, patience, steadfastness;
How to master self and temper,
How to make our conduct fair;
When to speak and when be silent,
When to do and when forbear.
