Don't Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will
When the road we're trudging seems all up hill
When the funds are low & the debts are high
And we want to smile, but we have to sigh

When care is pressing us down a bit
Rest, if we must but don't quit
Life is queer with its twists & turns
As everyone of us sometimes learns

And many a failure turns about
When we might have won had we stuck it out
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow
We might succeed with another blow

Often the struggler has given up
When we might have captured the victory cup
And we learned too late, when the night slipped down
How close we was to the golden crown

Success is failure turned inside out
Every sad situation has a silver lining of doubt
And we never can tell how close we are
It may be near when it seems afar

So stick to the fight when we're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that we mustn't QUIT!
