Heave Ho, Push, Pull

Sometimes it would seem easier
To crumple weakly and admit
That we fail more than we succeed
It would seem easier to quit

For gain is not an easy fight
We slip and slide, stumble and fall
Still, no matter what odds may seem
To quit is but to lose it all

And so we keep on keeping on
For quitting is to fail in full
One moment at a time, my love
Heave-ho, heave-ho, push-pull, push-pull

Sometimes when life hands us a stinging slap to the face,
A quick fist to the gut,
a hard kick behind the knees
it would seem easier to quit trying so hard,
but to become stronger we need to push against the odds,
not by our own strength and power,
but God's. 

He is faithful...

The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, And I am saved from my enemies. Ps. 18:2-3
