1 I will try to make those happy whom I meet,
And will speak a kindly word whene’er I can;
And from those who would rejoice at one’s defeat
Win a deed to aid a struggling fellow-man.

Refrain:
I will try, I will try to make someone happy today,
By a kindly word or a helpful deed,
“For the Master’s sake” I’ll see a brother’s need;
I will try, really try in an earnest sort of a way,
Yes, I’ll try, really try to make someone happy today.

2 I will try to help a weaker one to rise,
I will try to help him bear his heavy load;
It is not an easy climb where glory lies,
And the upward path is not an easy road. [Refrain]

3 I’ve a brother or a sister in my home,
Or there’s one who works beside me all the day;
If I seek a chance I have not far to roam,
For the kindly word that I to them should say. [Refrain]
