Have you done any good today?


Have I done any good in the world today?
Have I helped anyone in need?
Have I cheered up the sad
and made someone feel glad?
If not I have failed indeed.
Has anyone’s burden been lighter today
because I was willing to share?
Have the sick and the weary
been helped on their way?
When they needed my help was I there?
Then wake up and do something more
than dream of your mansion above.
Doing good is a pleasure,
a joy beyond measure,
a blessing of duty and love.
-Will L. Thompson

    Love this song. Learned it as a small child, and I sing it often. It’s nice to remember how our talents should and can easily be used to do good for others!
