Keep a-trying.

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
when the road you're trudging seems all uphill,

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.

That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all

The knob on the door to heaven extends to one side alone,
It's a place of great exaltation with God seated on the throne.

Where great joys are never ending and praises ring to and fro.
