If you hear a kind word spoken
…Of some worthy soul you know,
It may fill his heart with sunshine
…If you only tell him so.
If a deed, however humble,
…Helps you on your way to go,
Seek the one whose hand has helped you,
…Seek him out and tell him so!
If your heart is touched and tender
…Toward a sinner, lost and low,
It might help him to do better
…If you’d only tell him so!
Oh, my sisters, oh, my brothers,
…As o’er life’s rough path you go,
If God’s love has saved and kept you,
…Do not fail to tell men so!
