Once I thought my happiness
depended upon the happiness of others.
Now, accepting their need
to learn from their own mistakes,
I accept my mission
to set a righteous example.
So by living correct principles,
having faith in Heavenly Father’s
plan for me,
by cheerfully enduring my illness,
by showing gratitude
for all I have and can do,
by reaching out in love to others,
and by living joyfully;
I stand as a lighthouse
firm upon The Rock,
burning with His Light,
to show others the way home.
