1 Have you had a kindness shown?
Pass it on, pass it on!
‘Twas not giv’n for thee alone,
Pass it on, pass it on!
Let it travel down the years,
Let it wipe another’s tears;
Till in heav’n the deed appears,
Pass it on, pass it on!

Pass it on, pass it on!
Cheerful word of loving deed,
Pass it on,
Live for self, you live in vain;
Live for Christ, you live again,
Live for Him, with Him you reign.
Pass it on, pass it on!

2 Did you hear the loving word?
Pass it on, pass it on!
Like the singing of a bird?
Pass it on, pass it on!
Let its music live and grow,
Let it cheer another’s woe;
You have reaped what others sow,
Pass it on, pass it on! [Refrain]

3 Have you found the heav’nly light?
Pass it on, pass it on!
Souls are groping in the night,
Daylight gone, daylight gone!
Hold your lighted lamp on high,
Be a star in someone’s sky,
He may live who else would die,
Pass it on, pass it on! [Refrain]
