Steady, steady

Donate to Marie Curie Cancer Care

It’s the steady, constant driving

To the goal for which you’re striving,

Not the speed with which you travel

That will make the victory sure.

It’s the everlasting gaining,

Without whimper or complaining

At the burdens you are bearing,

Or the woes you must endure.


It’s the holding to a purpose

And the never giving in;

It’s the cutting down the distance

By the little that you win.

It’s the iron will to do it

And the steady sticking to it.

So, whate’er your task, go to it

And life’s purpose you will win.
