A Beautiful Life

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 evening 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 life must shine along the way
I’ll sing His praise while the ages roll
And strive to help some troubled soul

While going down life’s weary road
I’ll try to lift some traveler’s load
I’ll try to turn the night to day
Make flowers bloom along the way

The only life that will endure
Is one that’s kind and good and pure
And so for God, I’ll take my stand
Each day I’ll lend a helping hand
