A Persistent Heart

Every day we must greet our challenges with a persistent heart
Gathering up our courage to continue to play our part
Making our best effort in order to open to the grace
That will lift us a little higher as we come face to face
With circumstances beyond our control whatever they may be
We must sequester the strength within, I know you will agree
For no one can do it for us and the time is always now
And all those years stretching behind reassure us of how
We can continue each day making our very best effort
Navigating those waters of life ‘til we come to rest at port
