Doing Your Best
What ever the game, and whatever the odds,
The winning is all up to you;
For it isn't the score, and it isn't the prize,
That counts when the playing is through!
In the great game of Life, it's the purpose to win,
And the courage to fight to the end,
That determines for you what degree of success
Will be scored to your credit, my friend.
The best you can do may not be quite enough
To defeat your opponents today;
But you never, can lose, and you never can fail,
If you "put all you've got" In your play;
And the greatest reward that your efforts can bring,
is the fact that you stood to the test--
That you played a clean game,
And that you fought a good fight,
And you always
were doing your best!
