You are here for great deeds,
Your journey will not be forgotten,
Restore the honor of your father.

There's one more example in paq'raD, Canto 1, Stanza 2:

nuv 'umHa' leghchugh veqlargh
ngoS nuv 'umHa'
net jatlh

Those unfit disintegrate
At the glance of Fek'lhr
So it is said

I believe this is the only canonical example of a "speech verb" taking a sentence as an object.
