Never give up on being hopeful,
For the soul needs hope to survive.
It’s what keeps you ever moving
When you are treading to stay alive.
Never give up on loving another,
Even when love is not returned.
Love takes time to enter the heart
Of a life that’s been horribly ruined.
Never give up believing in God,
When He seems so far away.
It’s when you need Him the most,
You must take time to pray.
Never give up on finding peace.
You’ll find it waiting inside.
It comes when you reach acceptance
And let go of your foolish pride.
The things of this world distract us
From reaching our highest goals.
We’ll find in silence and nature
A way to nurture our souls.
When a soul is nurtured and peaceful,
It is filled with an endless love;
And it seeks to connect those in need
With a merciful God above.
