If you should meet some lonely soul who on this earth can't reach his gold
And he's traveling down the road so dark and dim
Lend the hand say a prayer give a smile that he might share
But for the grace of God it could be you instead of him
(But for the grace of God it could be you instead of him)
Be friend each stranger in the night help to make his burdens light
Lift up the falling ones and be a friend

Shed a tear share a sight Share his fears don't pass him by
But for the grace of God it could be you instead of him
(It could be you instead of him)
Shed a tear share a sight
