set up boat at sunset

as you travel along

As you travel along in your daily toil 

Keep love in your heart – in your eyes a smile. 
Give a word of cheer to those who are blue; 
A warm handclasp will help some, too; 
A wave of the hand, a cheery “Good Day” 
To those you may meet or pass by the way… 
As you travel along.

Start in the day with a word of prayer, 
As the birds trill notes to the morning air. 
Let your prayer be to God, like their songs to Heaven, 
Thankful for life and the blessings given; 
Thinking those thoughts that are right and good, 
Doing those deals that you feel you should… 
As you travel along.

Then, When your day shall come to a close, 
Just pause for awhile ere you seek repose, 
Think back through your day, and the deeds that were done 
Of the trails met, and the victories won. 
And as you close eyes in peaceful sleep, 
Pray God in His love your soul to keep… 
As you travel along.
