“I would not give much for your religion
unless it can be seen.
I know some people's religion is heard of,
but give me the man whose religion is seen.
Lamps do not talk, but shine;
a lighthouse sounds no drum,
it beats no gong,
and yet far over the waters
its friendly spark is seen by the mariner.
So let your actions shine out your religion.
Let your conduct talk out your soul.
Let the main sermon of your life
be illustrated by all your conduct,
and it shall not fail to be illustrious.”
