1 What gladness comes with shades of night
When we have tried to do the right!
It makes our pathway fair and bright
To ever do the right!

Refrain:
Do the right—do the right!
For God is on the side of right!
Do the right—do the right!
For God is on the side of right!

2 The tempter ever seeks to win
Our footsteps to the paths of sin;
But all are safe from Satan’s might
Who seek to do the right! [Refrain]

3 Each battle won against the wrong,
Will make us for the next more strong;
O life shall grow more fair and bright
To all who do the right! [Refrain]
