Being Good and True

If you were busy being kind,

before you knew it, you would find

you’d soon forget to think ’twas true

that someone was unkind to you.

If you were busy being glad,

and cheering people who are sad,

although you heart might ache a bit,

you’d soon forget to notice it.

If you were busy being good,

and doing just the best you could,

you’d not have time to blame some man

who’s doing just the best he can.

If you were busy being true

to what you know you ought to do,

you’d be so busy you’d forget

the blunders of the folks you’ve met.
