Don’t Give Up

Don’t give up my sweet friend

Do not give in to that temptation

With patience and practice, I promise joy will be found

 

Don’t give up my sweet friend

Do not let the devil win

With strength and determination, I promise joy will be found

 

Don’t give up my sweet friend

Do not worry about how much you have sinned

With forgiveness and love, I promise joy will be found

 

Don’t give up my sweet friend

It may feel like the end

Through sacrifice and pain, one day joy will be found

 

Stand tall my sweet friend

If you made it this far now your life will begin
