By The Work You Did Today
By Charles L. Mead
with the day that's slipping past
That you helped a single brother
of the many that you passed?
Is a single heart rejoicing
over what you did and said?
Does the man whose hopes where 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 God will say,
You have earned one more tomorrow,
By the work you did today
