Don’t start the day with doubts and fears,
For where they live, faith disappears.
Love won’t grow in a gloomy heart,
Where sorrows live and tear drops start.

Don’t give up before you’ve begun,
You still have time to get things done.
Don’t waste the time God’s given you,
Let Him be praised in all you do.

Don’t be a quitter, you’re not alone,
We all must crawl before we grown.
There are no rainbows without rain,
There are no victories without pain.

Don’t let God down and run away,
You can’t go back to yesterday.
Don’t start the day with doubts and fears,
For where God lives, faith reappears!
