It’s the hand we clasp with an honest grasp

That gives a hearty thrill;

It’s the good we pour into others’ lives

That comes back our own to fill.

It’s the dregs we drain from another’s cup

That makes our own seem sweet;

And the hours we give to another’s need

That makes our life complete.

 

It’s the burdens we help another bear

That makes our own seem light.

It’s the anger seen for another’s feet

That shows us the path to right.

It’s the good we do each passing day,

With a heart sincere and true;

In giving the world your very best

It’s best will return to you.
