Do a Kindness - circa 1902

from circa 1902    Sunday School Recitations

Do a kindness, do it well;
Angels will the story tell.

Do a kindness; tell it not;
Angel hands will mark the spot.

Do a kindness; count no gain;
Angels sing it in refrain.

Do a kindness; though no story;
It may grace, 'twill ring in glory.

Do a kindness; though tis small.
Angels' voices sing it all.

Do a kindness; never mind!
What you lose the angels find.

Do a kindness; small or great,
'Twill come back in double weight.

Do a kindness; never fret!
No good deed has been lost yet.

Do a kindness!  Do it now!
Angels know it all, somehow.

Do a kindness any time;
Angels weave it into rhyme.

Kindly deeds, and thoughts, and words,  

Bless the world like songs of birds.
