Is anybody happier because you passed his way?
Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today?
This 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 a man whose hopes were fading
now with courage look ahead? 

Did you waste the day or lose it,
was it well or poorly 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 would say
You have earned one more tomorrow by the
work you did today?
