TRYING, by            
First Line: If you've failed in things you sought
Last Line: Just by trying.
Subject(s): Faith; Belief; Creed


If you've failed in things you sought,
Stop your crying;
Fortunes fair from dreams are wrought
Just by trying;
Whether you be king or thrall,
High your wish, or low your call,
If you falter you will fall
Helpless, dying!

On! press on and on with time,
Self denying;
Victory demands you climb—
Faith undying.
You will reach that treasured height,
See dawn burst above the night,
And be bound to win your fight,
Just by trying.
