When others do me serious wrong,
I will forgive to keep me strong;
When others speak an unkind word,
I will forget what I have heard.
When others fail to do their part,
I will do more with loving heart;
When others fail to give me praise;
I still will go the loving ways.
When some are praised for what I do,
I will do more, and praise them too;
I will do more so I may know
God’s peace and joy where’er I go.
