1 There are times when a word—just a friendly word—
Makes the heart of the wayfarer strong;
For it tells someone cares for a comrade’s weal,
And would help as we journey along.
O the words we may speak, O the help we may give,
To the comrades we meet in the way!
Let us scatter the sunshine of love and of hope
Into some aching heart ev’ry day.
2 There are times when a smile—just a loving smile—
Drives the gloom from a sorrowing heart;
So, O comrade of mine, it is well worth while
To be brave till the clouds break apart. [Refrain]
3 O the good we may do as we journey on,
In the road leading home, day by day;
Let no chances be lost for a helpful deed,
Or a word or a smile by the way. [Refrain]
