INFLUENCE, by            
First Line: Should there come into your mind
Last Line: Take it out in doing!


Should there come into your mind
Just a little thought unkind,
Let not thought evolve to word,
Let not word to deed be stirred --
Take it out in thinking!

Should there come into your heart
A thought that may some love impart,
Hold that thought and let it grow --
Into a word the world may know --
Take it out in speaking!

Should there come into your soul
A thought and word of good control,
Evolve them into deeds of love
And help the world to forward move --
Take it out in doing!
