1 Scatter joy and gladness all along your way,
For the world needs words of cheer;
Deeds of love and kindness strew life’s path with flow’rs,
Bright’ning up the way so drear.

Refrain:
Joy and gladness scatter along your way,
Bringing sunshine into some life each day;
Live to make life’s desert blossom as the rose,
Scatter joy and gladness, lighten all life’s woes.

2 Have you seen a brother, sinking in despair,
With no friendly hand to save?
Heeding not your own cross, strive his load to share,
Help him to be strong and brave. [Refrain]

3 Tell the world so needy of a Father’s care;
Good he brings from seeming ill;
E’er his love brings peace, contentment, hope and joy,
Darkest days with light will fill. [Refrain]
