Do Your Best

By Kate Louise Wheeler

Make the best of life today—
Take what God has given;
Do not falter on the way—
Each step leads to Heaven.

Tho’ the journey may be long,
And the way be weary,
Make it shorter with a song—
Days will seem less dreary.

Let the sunshine fill your heart—
All it’s shadows hiding;
Do your humble little part—
Leave to God the guiding.

Do not soar to highest things
‘Till you have a reason;
He will give the soul it’s wings
In his own good season.

Little robins in the nest—
Ere their wings are stronger—
Learn too late that it is best
To keep patient longer.

If you cannot do to-day
What you hope and plan,
God will show a better way,—
Do the best you can.
