1 Speak kindly to the erring one you meet upon the way;
The burdened heart is yearning for a word that you may say.
With anxious heart and smiling face tell of a Savior’s love;
And point the way that leads to everlasting life above.
Sunbeams, sunbeams, scatter them day by day;
Sunbeams, sunbeams, scatter them all the way,
Sunbeams, sunbeams, scatter them while you may,
Where’er you be, on land or sea,
Scatter them all the way.
2 Speak gently to the wand’ring one! O do not scold or frown;
Remember that his brow may some day wear a starry crown.
Be patient; soft in pathos speak; in earnest try to win;
A precious jewel, priceless gem, tho’ stained with guilt and sin. [Refrain]
3 Speak sweetly to the fallen one, in accents soft and low;
Tell of the patient Savior and His love, where’re you go,
Remember that when thou thyself wert deep in sin and night;
A tender word, a winning smile, brought comfort, joy and light. [Refrain]
