If I can throw a single ray of light


If I can throw a single ray of light,
Across the darkened pathway of another;
If I can aid some soul to clearer sight
Of life and duty and thus bless my brother;
If I can wipe from any human cheek a tear
I shall not have, then, lived in vain while here.

If I can guide some erring one to truth,
Inspire within his heart a sense of duty;
If I can plant within my soul of rosy youth
A sense of right, a love of truth and beauty;
If I can teach one man that God and Heaven are near;
I shall not have, then, lived in vain while here.

If from my mind I can banish doubt and fear
And keep my life attuned to truth, love and kindness;
If I can scatter light and hope and cheer
And help remove the curse of mental blindness;
If I can make more joy, more hope, less pain
I shall not have lived and loved in vain.

If by life's road side I can plant a tree
Beneath whose shade some wearied head may rest
Though I may never share its shade or see its beauty
I shall yet be truly blessed
Though no one knows my name, nor drops a flower upon my grave,
I shall not have lived in vain while here.
