Although 'Hard Times Come Again No More' is an American folk song, it has resonated with people throughout the world for over 150 years.

The song is asking the more fortunate to consider the struggles of those with less. Written in 1854 by acclaimed songwriter Stephen Foster, who himself passed away in abject poverty, the song certainly carries more meaning with it because of this.

The remarkably talented sisters Lennon and Maisy have been singing their way into people's hearts, and did so again at 2013's Grand Ole Opry. They are some of the youngest performers to ever appear on the show, just 12 and 8 years old when they got on stage to perform. The duo serenaded with 'Hard Times' as well as 'Ring of Fire' and two covers of current pop music.

You won't believe how young they are when you hear how they channel the spirit of this song. Watch below!

+++++++++++ LYRICS BELOW +++++++++++
Let us pause in life's pleasures and count its many tears,
While we all sup sorrow with the poor;
There's a song that will linger forever in our ears;
Oh! Hard times come again no more.

'Tis the song, the sigh of the weary,
Hard Times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered around my cabin door;
Oh! Hard times come again no more.

While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay,
There are frail forms fainting at the door;
Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say
Oh! Hard times come again no more.

There's a pale drooping maiden who toils her life away,
With a worn heart whose better days are o'er:
Though her voice would be merry, 'tis sighing all the day,
Oh! Hard times come again no more.

'Tis a sigh that is wafted across the troubled wave,
'Tis a wail that is heard upon the shore
'Tis a dirge that is murmured around the lowly grave
Oh! Hard times come again no more
