Be Brave!


Be Brave!
Fight those who fight you with
Courage!

Courage to stand up
For what's right!
Courage to stand up
For the weak!
Courage to know
When a battle is lost!

Let the passion rise up and erupt
In a firey blaze!

Be Brave!
Don't fall to those who are weaker
And whisper with forked tongues
When your back is turned.

Use your courage
To stand your ground
And not fight back
Use your courage to
Forgive those who have wronged you.

Be Brave!
And use your courage to
know when to fight.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
