If the road is getting harder
You just might be going the right way
And if your troubles seem to gather all around
If the dreams that you've been climbing toward
Linger for another day
Don't be foolish, check your direction
But don't you be giving no ground!
Don't be foolish, keep on climbing
And don't you be giving no ground!

Easy come and easy go
It's easier said than done
And it ain't wide when the Wise Man's Way is found
In a day of lying vanities
The piercing truth will come
So don't be foolish, check your direction
But don't you be giving no ground!
Don't be foolish, keep on climbing
And don't you be giving no ground!

[Chorus:]
'Cause it's a long ladder
It's a long, long ladder
It's a long ladder up to heaven
It's a long ladder
It's a long, long ladder
It's a long ladder....
And don't you be giving no ground!

In the sway of wild and wintry winds
A cloud of witness grows
And victors marching make the heavens pound
Oh, death, you're not the strongest here
By love you've been deposed
So don't be foolish, check your direction
But don't you be giving no ground!
Don't be foolish, keep on climbing
And don't you be giving no ground!

[Chorus:]
