Life is filled with
That sometimes seem to overwhelm
And the future dim to the eye
But still one must continue to try.
There are times you lose control
And quaver instead of standing bold
Fearing the undertow
That threatens to bring you down.
When you feel down-cast
It is time to ask
God for rescue
And give you another view.
Press on when your heart is broken
By those you hold dear
And speak words of love you feel
Letting them know your love is real.
Life at times presses in
Challenging your courage within
But a little voice at end of day
Says tomorrow I'll try again.
So you press on
Endeavoring to overcome
The circumstances that overwhelm
And find courage begin to swell.
When you stumble and fall
Press on as past success you recall
Knowing God will carry you through
With courage to know what to do.
