If you have helped one single person
To overcome a prejudicial mind,
You have made an angel sing.
If you’ve withheld hot words of anger,
When control was hard to find,
You have made the heavens ring.
If you keep a smile upon your face,
Though the going’s really rough,
You’ll be blessed in many ways,
Doing little acts of kindness
Will, perhaps, be just enough
To brighten up somebody’s days.
If you find love within your heart,
Do not leave it there unspoken.
There is no greater gift to give.
Reach out to everyone around you,
Let its warmth be spread unbroken
Into this world in which we live.
