What you hold, may you always hold

What you hold, may you always hold.
What you do, may you do and never abandon.
But with swift pace, light step,
     unswerving feet,
     so that even your steps stir no dust,
go forward
     securely, joyfully, and swiftly,
on the path of prudent happiness,
     believing nothing
     agreeing with nothing
     which would dissuade you from this resolution
     or which would place a stumbling block for you on the way,
so that you may offer your vows to the Most High
in the pursuit of that perfection
to which the Spirit of the Lord has called you.
