Representative Text

1 A doubly pious way consists
When we our tribute bring,
In recollecting God exists
IN ev’ry living thing.

Kind words can never die;
To souls sweet peace impart;
Heav’n’s gates will surely open wide,
To him who cheers a heart.

2 That when a hand we kindly touch,
With pitying help or care;
‘Tis known in heaven just as much,
As if we did it there. [Refrain]

3 That when our voice in kind behalf
Of any grief is heard,
Heav’n’s wondrous gold-foiled phonograph,
Is taking ev’ry word. [Refrain]
