If you should meet some lonely soul who on this earth can't reach his gold
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)
Lift up the falling ones and be a friend
Shed a tear share a sight Share his fears don't pass him by
(It could be you instead of him)
