1 Here’s a lesson we should heed,
Try, try again;
If at first we don’t succeed,
Try, try again.
Hope and courage now appear,
Help us, Lord, we’ll persevere
Till we learn it; never fear,
Try, try again.

2 If we once or twice should fail,
Try, try again;
For we can, we must prevail,
Try, try again .
If we strive ‘tis no disgrace,
If we run we’ll win the race;
This we’ll do in every case,
Try, try again.

3 If we find our task is hard,
Try, try again;
Time will bring us our reward,
Try, try again.
All that others learn to do,
Why, with patience, can’t we, too,
If we keep this rule in view,
Try, try again.
