Who Shall We Help Today?

Who shall we help today, my friends, Who shall we help today? A poor-man passing in the road A word to ease his way? A kindly thought, a friendly deed A smile so freely given? These are the treasures all may give These are the keys to heaven!

 

Who shall we help today, my friends, Who shall we help today? A sad soul in distress perhaps? Kneel with that soul and pray; Show him the love our Father showed In the way His son was given: These are the gifts all have to give, These are the keys to heaven!

 

Who shall we help today, my friends, Who shall we help today? The lame, the sick, all those in need? So much that one can say And do to help another’s pain In love’s compassion given, Yours is the gift of giving, friend, Yours are the keys to heaven!
