You Mustn't Quit



You Mustn't Quit

Edgar A. Guest


When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, 


When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, 


When the funds are low and the debts are high


And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, 


When care is pressing you down a bit, 


Rest! if you must - but never quit. 



Life is queer, with its twists and turns, 


As every one of us sometimes learns,


And many a failure turns about


When he might have won if he'd stuck it out; 


Stick to your task, though the pace seems slow-


You may succeed with one more blow.



Success is failure turned inside out-


The silver tint of the clouds of doubt-


And you never can tell how close you are, 


It may be near when it seems afar; 


So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-


It's when things seem worst that YOU MUSTN'T QUIT. 



"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." Galatians 6:9
