See It Through by Edgar A Guest
When you’re up against a trouble, Meet it squarely, face
to face; Lift your chin and set your shoulders, Plant your
feet and take a brace. When it’s vain to try to dodge it,
Do the best that you can do; You may fail, but you may
conquer, See it through!
Black may be the clouds about you And your future may
seem grim, But don’t let your nerve desert you; Keep
yourself in fighting trim. If the worst is bound to happen,
Spite of all that you can do, Running from it will not save
you, See it through!
Even hope may seem but futile, When with troubles
you’re beset, But remember you are facing Just what
other men have met. You may fail, but fall still fighting;
Don’t give up, whate’er you do; Eyes front, head high to
the finish. See it through!
