Speak lovingly and kindly

Speak lovingly and kindly

While here on earth we stay

Our life is but a shadow

That soon will glide away

One little word of kindness

On some poor heart may fall

Like beams from yonder golden sun

That brightly shines for all

Speak lovingly and kindly

O let the task be ours

To scatter by the wayside

Not thorns, but smiling flowers

Though crowned with peace and plenty

Our happy homes may be

Remember those around us

Less favored far than we

Speak lovingly and kindly

For He our Lord we know

To us will show the kindness

That we to others show.
