When defeat has had its moment,

And discouragement sets in,


And you feel awash at sea,

And hopes great light is growing dim.


When your soul is heavy hearted,

And your spirit has lost its fight,


And shame and humiliation bark at you,

And fear descends like ruthless blight.


Don’t give up, give in, don’t surrender,

To those clanging chimes of doom,


Stand firm, be bold, have faith, have courage,

Crestfallen though you may be….you do not have to be consumed.
