Each day I’ll do a golden deed / by helping those who are in need
My life on earth is but a span / and so I’ll do the best I can.
Life’s feeble sun is sinking low / a few more days and I must go To reap the deeds that I have done / where there will be no setting sun.
While moving down life’s weary road / I’ll try to live some time alone
I’ll try to live aright this day / make flowers bloom along the way.
