At Day's End
" Is anybody happier because you passed his
Does anyone remember that you spoke to him
The day is almost over, and its toiling time
Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word
Can you say tonight, in parting with the day
that's slipping fast,
That you helped a single brother of the many
that you passed?
Is a single heart rejoicing over what you
did or said;
Does the man whose hopes were fading,
Now with courage look ahead?
Did you waste the day, or lose it? Was it
well or sorely spent?
Did you leave a trail of kindness, or a scar
As you close your eyes in slumber, do you
think that God will say,
You have earned one more tomorrow by the work
you did today?"
