Do All the Good that You Can.
Copyright, I89l, by I Kroch.
Woods by H. F. Smith.

We all have to battle with troubles and pains
As we go through the struggle of life;
And Oft' in our roaming we strike narrow lanes,
Where we meet with misfortune and strife.
But men who are honest most hardships can brave
That on life's rugged road may he spread;
And these are the words that my old mother gave
To her boy ere her spirit had tied:

Do all the good that you can, and in after years you will find
That charity always receives its reward in the peace which it brings to the mind. I
Braveness wins treasures that wealth cannot gain, in gladness or woe be a man;
And always remember my dying request, do all the good that you can.

I make it my object where'er I may live
For a person in trouble to plead;
And when it's deserving I'm ready to give
My assistance to help those in need.
I do unto others as I'd be done to,
And consider their welfare my awn;
Twas mother who told me this course to pursue,
And to me good results it has shown. -Chorus.
