Speak lovingly and kindly while here on earth we stay.
Our life is but a shadow now that soon shall pass away.
Speaking lovingly and kindly, O let the task be ours,
to scatter by the way-side paths not thorns, but lovely flowers.
Refrain:(Solo, Choir, or Congregation)
On little word of kindness on someone's ear
may fall like rays of golden sunshine
that brightly shines for all
Speaking lovingly and kindly, for he our Lord,
we know, will show to us the kindness that we to other show.
