452. Kind Words Can Never Die

1 Kind words can never die; cherished and blest,
God knows how deep they lie, stored in the breast;
Like childhood’s simple rhymes, said o’er a thousand times,
Go through all years and climes, the heart to cheer.

Refrain 1:
Kind words can never die, never die, never die;
Kind words can never die, no, never die.

2 Sweet thoughts can never die, though, like the flow’rs,
Their brightest hues may fly in wintry hours;
But when the gentle dew gives them their charms anew,
With many an added hue they bloom again.

Refrain 2:
Sweet thoughts can never die, never die, never die;
Sweet thoughts can never die, no, never die.

3 Our souls can never die, though in the tomb
We all may have to lie, wrapped in its gloom;
What though the flesh decay, souls pass in peace away,
Live though eternal day, with Christ above.

Refrain 3:
Our souls can never die, never die, never die;
Our souls can never die, no, never die.
