When The Last Rays Of Sunset Are Low In


When the last rays of sunset are low in the west,
When the toilers come home, and the world is at rest,
To the question my answer must be year or nay-
“Have you made the world better by living today?”

Better, better, better,
Have you made the world better by living today?
Have you done what you could in all things, as you should-
Have you made the world better by living today?

Did a storm-beaten pilgrim, cast down in the race,
See the Christ that you love when he looked in your face?
Did your pray for the friend who has drifted away-
Have you made the world better by living today?

Better, better, better,
Have you made the world better by living today?
Have you done what you could in all things, as you should-
Have you made the world better by living today?

Did the comrade who traveled with you all day long
Feel the touch of you faith in your word, in your song?
Has your heart felt the burden for souls gone astray-
Have you made the world better by living today?

Better, better, better,
Have you made the world better by living today?
Have you done what you could in all things, as you should-
Have you made the world better by living today?

When my life-day is over, and sunset has come,
When the work is all done and the toilers come home,
May I know that for which I will constantly pray-
I have made the world better by living today!

Better, better, better,
I have made the world better by living today?
I have done what you could in all things, as you should-
I have made the world better by living today!
