Be Strong!

Source unknown

Be strong! We are not here to play, to dream, to drift: We have hard work to do and loads to lift; Shun not the struggle: face it &ls;tis God's gift.

Be strong! Say not the days are evil who's to blame? And fold the hands and acquiesce O shame! Stand up, speak out, and bravely, in God's Name,

Be strong! It matters not how deep entrenched the wrong, How hard the battle goes, the day, how long; Faint not, fight on! Tomorrow comes the song.

- Maltbie Babcock (d. 1901)
