Representative Text

1 What’s the use of always fretting
At the trials we shall find
Ever strewn along our pathway?
Travel on and “never mind.”
Travel onward, working, hoping,
Cast no ling’ring look behind
At the trials once encountered,
Look ahead, and “never mind.”

Refrain:
What’s the use of always fretting
At the trials we shall find,
Ever strewn along our pathway?
Travel on and “never mind.”

2 What is past, is past forever,
Let all fretting be resigned;
It will never help the matter;
Do your best and “never mind.”
And if those how might befriend you,
Whom the ties of nature bind,
Should refuse to do their duty,
Look to heav’n, and “never mind.” [Refrain]

3 Friendly words are often spoken,
When the feelings are unkind;
Take them for their proper value,
Pass them by and “never mind.”
Fate may threaten, clouds may lower,
Enemies may be combined,
If your trust in God is steadfast,
He will help you, “never mind.” [Refrain]
