Lyrics

[Verse 1]
If I can help somebody as they pass along
If I can cheer somebody with a word or song
If I can show somebody that their travelling wrong
Then my living will not be in vain
If I can do my duty as a Christian or
If I should sing salvation to the world we rort
If I can spread the message as the master taught
Then my living will not be in vain

[Verse 2]
Well it really doesn't matter, most of the deed's I have done
It really doesn't matter, the prizes I may have won
I'd like for somebody to say I've tried to love someone
When I have to leave my day
And the crawl for justice, I have somebody run
And the walk for the hungry, I fed someone
And in the march for peace tell them I played the drum
When I have to meet my day
And the crawl for justice, I helped somebody run
And the walk for the hungry, I fed someone
And in the march for peace tell them I played the drum
When I have to meet my day
