1 Scatter kind words all around you;
Some heart in its sorrow will stay:
And catching the bright beaming treasures,
Find comfort for many a day.

Then scatter kind words;
They will never be lost;
Remember your mission below;
Scatter kind words,
Scatter kind words,
Wherever, wherever you go.

2 Scatter kind words by the wayside,
Nor fancy your labor in vain;
They come like the beautiful sunlight;
They fall and they cheer like the rain. [Refrain]

3 Scatter kind words to the lonely,
The friendless, the weak and oppressed;
Go scatter kind words to the erring;
In God shall your labor be blest. [Refrain]

4 Scatter kind words all around you;
Perchance, when your mission is o’er,
The seed you have dropped in a moment
May bloom on eternity’s shore. [Refrain]
