1 Look all around you, find someone in need,
Help somebody today!
Tho' it be little--a neighborly deed--
Help somebody today!

Chorus:
Help somebody today,
Somebody along life’s way;
Let sorrow be ended, the friendless befriended,
Oh, help somebody today!

2 Many are 'waiting a kind, loving word,
Help somebody today!
You have a message, O let it be heard,
Help somebody today! (Chorus)

3 Many have burdens too heavy to bear,
Help somebody today!
Grief is the portion of some everywhere,
Help somebody today! (Chorus)

4 Some are discouraged and weary in heart,
Help somebody today!
Someone the journey to heaven should start,
Help somebody today! (Chorus)
