1 As we journey on our pathway,
Which thro’ life’s great valley leads;
Let us scatter seeds of kindness,

Let us scatter seeds of kindness,

With a loving deed today. [Refrain]

3 Let us not delay our actions,
Thoughtless for another day;
There are souls that must be rescued,
Let us help them while we may. [Refrain]
