We'll only pass this way but once,
And while we're passing through,
Let's try and help the folks we meet
Who may be feeling blue.

If some wayfarer is cast down,
And weary with his load,
Give him a lift and set his feet
Once more upon life's road.

Some we will meet are old and frail,
And some are young and strong,
While others need a cheery word
To help them carry on.

If we can say a kindly word,
Or lend a helping had,
We'll do a favour to ourselves
As to our fellow man.

The little helpful things we do
To either foe or friend,
Will be rewarded when at last
We reach our journey's end.

November, 1948
