526. Keep the Heart Singing

1 We may lighten toil and care,
Or a heavy burden share,
With a word, a kindly deed, or sunny smile;
We may girdle day and night
With a halo of delight,
If we keep the heart singing all the while.

Refrain:
Keep the heart singing all the while;
Make the world brighter with a smile;
Keep the song ringing! Lonely hours we may beguile,
If we keep the heart singing all the while.

2 If His love is in the soul,
And we yield to His control,
Sweetest music will the lonely hours beguile;
We may drive the clouds away,
Cheer and bless the darkest day,
If we keep the heart singing all the while. [Refrain]

3 How a word of love will cheer,
Kindle hope, and banish fear,
Soothe a pain, or take away the sting of guile;
Oh, how much we all may do,
In the world we travel through,
If we keep the heart singing all the while. [Refrain]
