faithFaith In Myself - Marjorie Holmes
God gave me faith in myself,
not only on days when I'm going great and winning
and nothing seems impossible
but on days when the whole world looks lousy
and I'm losing and the road ahead seems too hard.

and I must be crazy to try,
don't let me quit Lord, not ever.
