Is anybody happier
Because you passed his way?
Does anyone remember
That you spoke to him today?
The day is almost over,
And its toiling time is through;
Is there anyone to utter
Now a kindly word of you?
Can you say tonight, in parting
With the day that's slipping fast,
That you helped a single brother
Of the many that you passed?
Is a single heart rejoicing
Over what you did or said?--
Does the man whose hopes were fading
Now with courage look ahead?
Did you waste the day or lose it?
Was it well or sorely spent?
Did you leave a trail of kindness
Or a scar of discontent?
As you close your eyes in slumber,
Do you think that God will say,
"You have earned one more tomorrow
By the work you did today?"
