When things go wrong as they sometimes will.
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill.
When funds are low and 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 don't you quit.
Life is queer with it's twists and turns.
As every one of us sometimes learn.
And many failures turn about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don't give up though the pace is slow-
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out.
The silver tint of the cloud of doubt.
And you can never tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when your hardest hit-
It's when things seem worse that you must not quit.
