No. 11 Speak Kindly

An old song with timeless advice:

Verse 1:
Speak kindly, speak kindly to young and to old;
The words of true kindness are better than gold;
Kind words ev’ry morning, kind words ev’ry night,
And kind words forever, in dark days or bright.
Kind words ev’ry morning, kind words ev’ry night,
And kind words forever, in dark days or bright.

Verse 2:
Speak kindly, speak kindly; no tongue can express
The power of true kindness to cheer and to bless;
It soothes ev’ry sorrow, makes smooth ev’ry path;
It lightens all burdens and turns away wrath.
It soothes ev’ry sorrow, makes smooth ev’ry path;
It lightens all burdens and turns away wrath.

Verse 3:
Speak kindly, speak kindly; kind words never yet
Brought hatred or discord or grief or regret;
Speak kindly, speak kindly, and then never fear;
Life’s lilies and roses will bloom all the year.
Speak kindly, speak kindly, and then never fear;
Life’s lilies and roses will bloom all the year.

Luella Clark/L.E. Jones
