Be Strong!

Be Strong

by Malthie Davenport Babcock

   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; ’tis God’s gift.

 

Be strong!

Say not, “The days are evil. Who’s to blame?”

And fold the hands and acquiesce- oh 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.
