Each day I do a golden deed
By helping those who are in need
My life on earth in but a span
And so I'll do the best I can

Life's evening sun is sinking low
A few more days and I must go
To meet the deeds that I have done
Where there will be no setting sun

To be a child of god each day
My light must shine along the way
I'll sing his praise while ages roll
And strive to help some troubled soul

* Refrain

While going down life's weary road
I'll try to lift some traveler's load
I'll try to turn the night to day
Make flowers bloom along the way

* Refrain

The only life that will endure
Is one that't kind and good and pure
And so for god I'll take my stand
Aach day I'll lend a helping hand

* Refrain
