  1. One Deed Of Kindness
    Poet: Daniel C. Colesworthy


    One deed of kindness every day
    Be earnest to perform;
    One mite give to the poor away —
    One shelter from the storm.

    One word of comfort speak to him
    Whose brow is dark with care;
    One smile for her whose eyes are dim
    By sickness or despair.

    One look of kind compassion give —
    One motion or a sigh ;
    One breath to bid the dying live —
    One prayer to God on high.

    What joy one moment may impart,
    If it is spent aright!
    One moment saves the broken heart
    And puts despair to flight.

    All can bestow most precious gifts —
    The weak, the low, the poor;
    The feeling heart from sorrow lifts
    To Heaven's wide-open door.



  2. Kindness
    Poet: Daniel C. Colesworthy


    In every breast, however rude,
    There is a glow of love,
    A latent spark of gratitude
    That words of kindness move.

    If every pain and care we feel
    Could burn upon the brow,
    How many hearts would move to heal
    That strive to crush us now!



  3. Forgive Thy Brother
    Poet: Daniel C. Colesworthy


    Forgive thy brother who has erred,
    And take him by the hand;
    And, as you speak a generous word,
    Assist his feet to stand.

    Joy sparkles in his eye to hear
    Thy words of gentle tone:
    Forgiveness breathed upon his ear,
    And love and kindness shown,

    Will make him rise to life again,
    And shun the path he trod,
    When in the round of Folly's train
    He broke from Truth and God.
    Forgive thy brother, even now
    A smite is on his cheek;
    The glow of heaven has tinged his brow
    Speak, and forgive him; speak!



  4. Humble Deeds
    Poet: Daniel C. Colesworthy


    It is not those who make a boast
    Of generous deeds which they perform,
    Who for the needy do the most,
    And find them shelter in the storm.

    He who has never raised his voice
    To gain the plaudits of a crowd
    Has often made the hearts rejoice
    That with oppressive chains were bowed.

    In humble life meek virtues spring
    To glad the heart, to bless and cheer,
    That never fly on eagle's wing,
    Or on the printed page appear.



  5. The Good Man
    Poet: Daniel C. Colesworthy


    Within his ever-peaceful breast
    No angry feelings rise:
    Contentment is his constant guest,
    And every want supplies.

    If blest with wealth, he daily gives
    The needy at his door;
    If poor, he thankfully receives,
    Without a grasp for more.

    While others murmur or complain,
    With joy he looks abroad,
    And in the sunshine and the rain
    Sees the kind hand of God.

    In pleasantness and peace his days
    Pass happily away;
    Angels, approving, on him gaze,
    And round his dwelling stay.
