The will to hang on when all else fails
The stubborn refusal to give up and wail
That dogged determination to live and go on
Is found in the hearts of both weak and strong

That uncompromising drive to survive
When impossible is the only other thing to thrive
Yet still all is possible for those who believe
No sky is the limit when vision conceives

Amazing journeys and testimonies sing
When heart and mind and will take wing
The trumpet of God in death's shadow declares
Hope is ever present ever living to share

The peace you gave to save us from wrath
Has given the freedom to choose any path
T'was more than a gift you gave us this day
T'was life in abundance and love, our mainstay

Merry Christmas Everyone
