  1. Each day I’ll do a golden deed,
    By helping those who are in need;
    My life on earth is but a span,
    And so I’ll do the best I can.
    • Refrain:
      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.
  2. 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.
  3. The only life that will endure,
    Is one that’s kind and good and pure;
    And so for God I’ll take my stand,
    Each day I’ll lend a helping hand.
  4. I’ll help someone in time of need,
    And journey on with rapid speed;
    I’ll help the sick and poor and weak,
    And words of kindness to them speak.
  5. While going down life’s weary road,
    I’ll try to lift some trav’ler’s load;
    I’ll try to turn the night to day,
    Make flowers bloom along the way.
