While the Days are going By

Verse 1:
There are lonely hearts to cherish,
While the days are going by:
There are weary souls who perish,
While the days are going by:
If a smile we can renew,
As our journey we pursue,
Oh, the good we all may do,
While the days are going by.

Refrain:
Going by, going by,
Going by, going by,
Oh, the good we all may do,
While the days are going by.

Verse 2:
There’s no time for idle scorning,
While the days are going by:
Let your face be like the morning,
While the days are going by:
Oh, the world is full of sighs,
Full of sad and weeping eyes;
Help your fallen brothers rise,
While the days are going by.

Verse 3:
All the loving links that bind us,
While the days are going by:
One by one we leave behind us,
While the days are going by:
But the seeds of good we sow,
Both in shade and shine will grow,
And will keep our hearts aglow,
While the days are going by.

George Cooper/Ira D. Sankey
