It goes like this...

Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

— 1 Corinthians 15:58

Delayed Gratification

Here's a concept that's foreign—to almost all kids and adults
Actions taken NOW, don't always see immediate results

In truth, most things worth working toward, take time to be realized
Or else hard work would not exist, so take note—and be advised

A firm foundation must first be built, before it all begins
And focus must be found, even as the world around you spins

If you do as Jesus did, you can persist past any pain
If you learn to stand firm, knowing your labor is not in vain

Effort is never wasted simply because you don't get paid
Try to understand: gratification... is at times delayed

It can come in many forms, and it can come in many ways
It can come when least expected, so don't sit and count the days

But while you're waiting, be sure to always give your very best
In all things, be patient, and know that God's glory is professed
And never delay your gratitude, for being truly blessed
