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 day's 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 intrenched the wrong,
How hard the battle goes, the day how long;
Faint not-fight on! Tomorrow comes the song.

Claire,
What are the labels for at the bottom of your recent posts? When I clicked on them it just brought me back to the exact same place on your page.

Veronica, that's a new feature with Blogger Beta. Each "label" will take you to a page of all posts "catagorized" under the same one -- when there are more posts labeled as time goes on. :)
