That Testing Word

 The above poem is thought to be written by Edgar A. Guest but there is some debate on the author of this poem...

When I don’t want to
When I’m feeling low
Weighed with a presence of
Worry and woe
When I weakly ponder
That testing word, ‘quit’
And my weary being
Hungers for it

...Then I think of Jonah
In that fish until
He was prepared
To obey God’s will
So I re-endeavor
Simply to try,
For God is Giver
By His grace go I
