    It’s doing your job the best you can
    And being just to your fellow man;
    It’s making money – but holding friends
    And being true to your aims and ends;
    It’s figuring how and learning why
    And looking forward and thinking high
    And dreaming a little and doing much.
    It’s keeping always in closest touch
    With what is finest in word and deed;
    It’s being thorough, yet making speed;
    It’s daring blithely the field of chance
    While making labor a brave romance;
    It’s going onward despite defeat
    And fighting staunchly, but keeping sweet;
    It’s being clean and it’s playing fair;
    It’s laughing lightly at Dame Despair;
    It’s looking up at the stars above
    And drinking deeply of life and love.
    It’s struggling on with the will to win
    But taking loss with a cheerful grin;
    It’s sharing sorrow and work and mirth
    And making better this good old earth
    It’s serving, striving through strain and stress;
    It’s doing your noblest – that’s Success!
