Lyrics

As we jour­ney on our path­way,
Which thro’ life’s great val­ley leads,
Let us scat­ter seeds of kind­ness,
Strew our path with lov­ing deeds.

Refrain

We pass this way but once;
We pass this way but once;
Let us scat­ter seeds of kind­ness,
For we pass this way but once.

Let us help the weary pil­grim,
Whom we meet up­on our way,
With a kind­ly word and ac­tion,
With a lov­ing deed to­day.

Refrain

Let us not delay our ac­tions,
Thoughtless for an­oth­er day;
There are souls that must be res­cued;
Let us help them while we may.
