Representative Text

1 Kind words can never die!
God gave them birth;
Winged with a smile they fly
All o'er the earth;
Kind words the angels bro't,
Kind words our Saviour taught,
Sweet melodies of tho't
Who knows their worth?

Chorus:
Kind words can never die, never die, never die,
Kind words can never die,
No, never die.

2 Kind deeds can never die!
Tho' weak and small,
From his bright throne on high
God sees them all;
He doth reward with love,
All those who faithful prove,
Round them where'er they move,
Rich blessings fall.

Chorus:
Kind deeds can never die, never die, never die,
Kind deeds can never die,
No, never die.

3 God's word can never die!
Tho' fallen man
Oft dares its truth deny--
Dares it in vain;
Kind words the angels bro't,
Kind words our Saviour taught,
Sweet melodies of tho't
Who knows their worth?

Chorus:
God's word can never die, never die, never die,
God's word can never die,
No, never die.

4 Our souls can never die!
God's word we trust;
He to our bodies said,
"Dust unto dust."
He doth reward with love,
All those who faithful prove,
Round them where'er they move,
Rich blessings fall.

Chorus:
Our souls can never die, never die, never die,
Our souls can never die,
No, never die.
