    Hope



    It Couldn't Be Done
    Somebody said that it couldn't be done,
    But he with a chuckle replied
    That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be the one
    Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.
    So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
    On his face. If he worried he hid it.
    He started to sing as he tackled that thing
    That couldn't be done, and he did it.

    Somebody scoffed: "Oh you'll never do that;
    At least no one ever has done it."
    But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
    And the first thing we knew he'd begun it.
    With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
    Without any doubting or quiddit,
    He started to sing as he tackled the thing
    That couldn't be done, and he did it.

    There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
    There are thousands to prophesy failure;
    There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,
    The dangers that wait to assail you.
    But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
    Just take off your coat and go to it;
    Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
    That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

    EDGAR A. GUEST


    "YOU'LL GET THROUGH THIS!"

    Pull the shades down on the sun.
    Don't want to see the morning break to another 
    day I don't have the strength to face. 
    Close the door & keep it shut. 
    Lord, this ache is just too much for me to take.
    How do I begin to pray ... my way back
    to some kind of peace of mind? 
    But then I hear love whispering thru the darkest of times.

    "You'll get thru this! You'll break new ground!
    When you're lost within your weakness,
    hope is waiting to be found. 
    You'll get thru this, no matter what it takes.
    I believe in you for Heaven sake.
    You'll get thru this!

    When doubt starts tearing at the faith deep in you ... don't be afraid.
    Just remember what I said:
    'Nothing formed against you will succeed',
    as long as your heart's turned to me. 

    "You'll get thru this! You'll break new ground!
    When you're lost within your weakness,
    hope is waiting to be found. 
    You'll get thru this, no matter what it takes.
    I believe in you for Heaven sake.
    You'll get thru this!"
