Representative Text

1 There are loyal hearts, there are spirits brave,
There are souls that are pure and true;
Then give to the world the best you have,
And the best will come back to you.

Refrain:
Then give the best you have, give the best you have,
O give the best, O give the best you have;
Then give to the world the best you have,
And the best will come back to you!

2 Give love, and love to your life will flow,
'Twill be strength in your time of need;
Have faith and a score of hearts will show
Their faith in your word and deed. [Refrain]

3 Give truth and it will be paid in kind,
And the honor will honor meet;
A smile that is sweet will surely find
A smile that is just as sweet. [Refrain]

4 For life's the mirror of king and slave,
And 'tis just what we are and do;
Then give to the world the best you have,
And the best will come back to you! [Refrain]
