Be Just and fear not........
let the truth protect you.

This pendant was cast from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1800's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come in a huge variety of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs...

This seal features the image of a pair of wings. Below the wings in a banner is the phrase 'Be just and fear not'. It is unusual to get a coat of arms with English instead of Latin, and this is a wonderful example.

The wings in heraldry represent protection.....

This seal is contemporary to the poet Henry Alfred (1810- 1871)
and may refer to his poem,

Be Just and Fear not....

SPEAK thou the truth. Let others fence,
And trim their words for pay:
In pleasant sunshine of pretence
Let others bask their day.

Guard thou the fact; though clouds of night
Down on thy watch-tower stoop:
Though thou shouldst see thine heart’s delight
Borne from thee by their swoop.

Face thou the wind. Though safer seem
In shelter to abide:
We were not made to sit and dream:
The safe, must first be tried.

Where God hath set His thorns about,
Cry not, “The way is plain:”
His path within for those without
Is paved with toil and pain.

One fragment of His blessèd Word,
Into thy spirit burned,
Is better than the whole, half-heard
And by thine interest turned.

Show thou thy light. If conscience gleam,
Set not thy bushel down:
The smallest spark may send his beam
O’er hamlet, tower, and town.

Woe, woe to him, on safety bent,
Who creeps to age from youth,
Failing to grasp his life’s intent,
Because he fears the truth.

Be true to every inmost thought,
And as thy thought, thy speech:
What thou hast not by suffering bought,
Presume thou not to teach.

Hold on, hold on—thou hast the rock,
The foes are on the sand:
The first world-tempest’s ruthless shock
Scatters their shifting strand:

While each wild gust the mist shall clear
We now see darkly through,
And justified at last appear
The true, in Him that’s True.


This seal will come with an explanation card and a copy of this poem.


This is a fairly big pendant and measures approx. 22mm in diameter.
This size is only approximate though because each piece is made individually by hand and may vary slightly.
