The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Beautiful Life

Each day I'll do a 4 golden 1 deed
By helping 5 those who are in 1 need
My life on earth is 4 but a 1 span
And so I'll do the 5 best I 1 can

Life's evening sun is sinking 4 low
A few more 5 days and I must 1 go
To meet the deeds that 4 I have 1 done
Where there will be no 5 setting 1 sun

To be a child of God each day
My light must shine along the way
I'll sing His praise while ages roll
And strive to help some troubled soul

While going down life's weary road
I'll try to lift some traveler's load
I'll try to turn the night to day
Make flowers bloom along the way

The only life that will endure
Is one that's kind and good and pure
And so for God I'll take my stand
Each day I'll lend a helping hand
