Each day I'll do a golden deed
By helping those who are in need
My life on earth is but a span
And so I'll do the best I can.
Life's sinking sun is sinking low
A few more days and I must go
To meet the deeds that I have done
Where there will be no setting sun.
To be a child of God each day
My light must shine along the way
I'll sing His praise while ages roll
And stive to help some troubled soul
While going down life's weary road
I'll try to lift some trav'lers load
I'll try to turn the night to day
Make flowers bloom along the way.
