by E. F. Hayward

There's no use complaining, whatever befall you,
Perhaps all your cares are but blessings disguised;
There are various ways in which duty may call you
To work out the plan she so wisely devised.

Just take it for granted, your task is essential,
A part most important in nature's great plan;
A duty well done, is a noble credential,
And one to be honored, by God and by man.

So bravely perform every duty assigned you,
And never complain of the burdens you bear;
And you will find pleasures enough to remind you
That life has more blessings than hardships and care.
