It isn't the "half-way" mark that shows                                     Keep Climbing! No matter how bitter the pace
How the climbers are coming in;                                             There's hope for the climber who tries;
For the leaders may fail, but no one knows                                  Keep Climbing! No matter how backward your place,
Who is finally going to win.                                                You still have a chance at the prize!

It's the power of "sticking" — at any cost,                                 It's the "Finish" that tells how the race is run!
That measures the winner's class;                                           It's the spurt at the end of the grind;
It's his nerve — when the race seems almost lost;                           And many a worth-while prize is won,
It's the grit and the sand he has!                                          By the "Stayer" who comes from behind.
