1. Would you know earth’s highest happiness?
Would you know its greatest blessedness?
Would you know its truest joyfulness
Make some other heart rejoice.

Refrain
Give a pleasant smile, speak a kindly word,
Lend a hand to help a brother;
Give a pleasant smile, speak a kindly word,
Lend a hand to help another.

2. Pleasant smiles will cheer a drooping heart,
Kindly words relieve a bitter smart,
Helping hands to weakness strength impart,
Make some other heart rejoice. [Refrain]

3. Many hearts are crushed with bitter woe,
Many hearts with grief are bending low,
Many hearts need help you can bestow,
Make some other heart rejoice. [Refrain]
