1 Helpful be each passing day,
For His dear sake;
Brighten some one’s gloomy way,
For His dear sake;
Dry a tear, dispell a care,
Some one’s weight of sorrow share,
“Scatter sunshine” everywhere,
For His dear sake!

Refrain:
“For His dear sake!” shall e’er our motto be!
For His dear sake! we’ll toil most loyally!
Drying tears, dispelling cares,
Each the other’s sorrow shares;
Each a smile of gladness wears,
For His dear sake!

2 Helpful be each passing day,
For His dear sake;
Show some wanderer the way,
For His dear sake;
Lighten trouble and distress,
Friendless ones befriend and bless,
Thrill with love and tenderness,
For His dear sake! [Refrain]

Helpful be each day you live,
For His dear sake;
Of your time and talents give,
For His dear sake;
Make His love your daily song;
Lessen sin and strife and wrong,
Try to swell the ransomed throng,
For His dear sake! [Refrain]
