We shall do much in the years to come,
But what have we done today?

          We shall give our gold in a princely sum,
          But what did we give today?

                We shall lift the heart and dry the tear,
                We shall plant a hope in the place of fear,
                We shall speak the words of love and cheer,
                But what did we speak today?

                      We shall be so kind in the after while
                      But what have we done today?

We shall bring to each lonely life a smile,
But what have we brought today?

                We shall give to truth a grander birth,
                And to steadfast faith a deeper worth,
                We shall feed the hungering souls of earth,
                But whom have we feed today?

                      We shall reap joy in the by and by,
                      But what have we sown today?

                            We shall build us mansions in the sky,
                            But what have we built today?

‘Tis sweet in the idle dreams to bask;
But here and now, do we our task?
Yet, this is the time our souls must ask,
What have we done today ?
