Never give up if it’s worth the doing
Never give up if the end be right,
If it’s a purpose thats worth pursuing,
Go for it, morning and noon and night.
Never give up though your best friends drop you,
Saying that only a fool keeps on.
If it be worthy, let nothing stop you
Stick to your cause till your strength is gone.
Never give up how so oft you blunder,
Failure is part of a mans career.
Sink if you must, but dont stay under,
Keep a stout heart and persevere.
Out of their failures and sharp distresses,
Out of the swamps of despair and doubt,
Brave men have come to their best successes,
Never give up while your strength holds out
