Have you had a kindness shown?
Pass it on!
'Twas not given for thee alone --
Pass it on!
Let it travel down the years,
Let it wipe another's tears,
Till in heaven the deed appears,
Pass it on!

Did you hear the loving word --
Pass it on!
Like the singing of a bird?
Pass it on!
Let its music live and grow,
Let it cheer another's woe,
You have reaped what others sow --
Pass it on!

'Twas the sunshine of a smile --
Pass it on!
Staying but a little while?
Pass it on!
April beam, the little thing,
Still it wakes the flowers of spring,
Makes the silent birds to sing --
Pass it on!

Have you found the heavenly light?
Pass it on!
Souls are groping in the night,
Daylight gone;
Hold thy lighted lamp on high,
Be a star in some one's sky,
He may live who else would die --
Pass it on!

Love demands the loving deed;
Pass it on!
Look upon thy brother's need,
Pass it on!
Live for self, you live in vain;
Live for Christ, you live again;
Live for Him, with Him you reign --
Pass it on!
