When we know our purpose
We can soldier on
With passion and endurance
We know that nothings wrong

The difficulties that we face
Are merely trials we accept
To achieve our life’s ambition
Means that we are blessed

The salmon up the stream
Has a mission to complete
Its determination’s not in question
Only death means its defeat

When or if we’re questioned
Why we continue as we do
When we know our purpose
We know no other point of view

A lifetime’s commitment
Is no struggle to the end
Who knows their life’s ambition
Is to sing their victory song
