Jangan Menyerah

Don't Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don't you quit

Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out

Don't give up though the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another blow
Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt

And you never can tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems so far
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit




Jangan Menyerah

Ketika segalanya salah seperti biasanya terjadi
Ketika jalan serasa menanjaki bukit harus kau lalui
Ketika dana simpanan tipis dan hutang menumpuk
Dan engkau ingin tersenyum tapi harus merutuk
Ketika perhatian malah membuatmu kecewa
Beristirahatlah, tapi jangan menyerah

Hidup itu menakjubkan dengan liku dan belokan
Dan setiap kita harus belajar terkadang
Titik balik awal ada di banyak kegagalan
Yang jadi kemenangan seandainya saja kita bertahan

Jangan menyerah meski laju terasa lambat
Engkau akan berhasil dengan cobaan yang lebih hebat
Keberhasilan adalah kegagalan yang terbalikkan
Oleh setitik kegigihan di tengah awan keraguan

Dan engkau takkan pernah tahu seberapa dekat
Meski tampak jauh ketika sebenarnya sudah lekat
Jadi tetap bertarunglah setelah engkau terpukul paling parah
Justru ketika segalanya buruk engkau tak boleh menyerah
