During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

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]
