Representative Text

1 If we only knew what good we could do,
In this world of sin and sorrow,
We would not delay but do it today,
And never wait for tomorrow,
No, never wait for tomorrow,
No, never wait for tomorrow;
But do it today and never delay,
And save a world of sorrow.

2 Any cheering word, in gloom that is heard,
By a heart that grief would borrow,
May lighten the load, and brighten the road;
So never wait for tomorrow,
No, never wait for tomorrow,
No, never wait for tomorrow;
But speak it today and never delay,
‘Twill lift the clouds of sorrow.

3 And a loving smile, some heart may incline
To the path that’s straight and narrow;
A kind, friendly deed to one in his need
Is better now than tomorrow,
Yes, better now than tomorrow,
Yes, better now than tomorrow;
So do it today and never delay,
And save a world of sorrow.
