Some people are sad and slow to gladden,
Some people are glad and slow to sadden;
Some of us weep and some only sneeze,
But you my friend are none of these.
You cling to joy and hark to
Yours is the world for ever after,
So catch that beast life and hold it tight,
Live it and give it, the gift that is Right!
To you and your kind will the
world give its all,
The health and the wealth from spring unto fall,
The love and joy from fall unto spring,
But that dear one is not everything!
The Lord will bless you and
watch o’er you too,
So be kind, and praise Him in all that you do.
These are the pure and the beautiful things,
The path we must trod to our Heavenly King.
