Stand straight and tall, head held high, focus beyond your distress.
Ask God to help you find the strength and bless your efforts with success.
Though it will take both toil and time, continue in the belief
That deep within you have what is needed to cross through the valley of grief.
With faith, love and perseverance, taking just one step at a time,
You’ll eventually reach the peak you seek at the top of the arduous climb.
When you conquer that summit, though it may take a while,
Your heart will be at peace, and once again you’ll smile.
