Author: E. E. Rexford Hymnal: The King of Kings #56 (1915) Hymnal Title: The King of Kings First Line: O speak kind words to one and all Refrain First Line: Then scatter everywhere Lyrics: 1 O speak kind words to one and all,
As thro’ the world you go;
Let helpful deeds beside your path
Like flow’rs of beauty grow.
The fragrance of a loving word
Will linger in the heart,
As sweetness haunts the faded rose
When summer days depart.
Then scatter ev’rywhere,
As thro’ the world we go,
The seeds of the living tho’ts and deeds,
For God would have it so.
2 As we go journeying on thro’ life,
Perhaps we may not know
The good kind words of ours have done
To those who come and go.
But God will know, and surely He,
In His good time and way,
The Giver of each kindly word
Will royally repay. [Refrain]
3 So speak kind words to one and all;
This life is all too brief
To waste in discord, and in strife
That brings regret and grief.
With sunshine, born of pleasant words,
Let’s scatter clouds of pain,
And thus make bright the sorrowing face,
As skies are after rain. [Refrain] Languages: English Tune Title: [O speak kind words to one and all]
