Pass the Good Along

From the deep blue sea sped a cooling breeze

Representative Text

1 From the deep blue sea sped a cooling breeze
To cheer the flower throng,
As they raised their heads came a whisper low,—
“Just pass the good along.”

Pass the good with a will,
Just a word, or smile, or song;
Be it ever so small, don’t keep it all,
Just pass the good along.

2 Thro’ the meadows dry ran a little brook,
All day it sang a song
As its sparkling drops health and comfort gave,—
“Just pass the good along.” [Refrain]

3 In a dreary home lives a sunny heart,
Amid a toiling throng,
Day by day its life spoke in joyful notes,—
“Just pass the good along.” [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
