May 15 Daily Cheer

Let’s oftener talk of nobler deeds

And rarer of the bad ones

And sing about our happy days

And not about the sad ones.

We were not made to fret and sigh

And when grief sleeps to wake it

Bright happiness is standing by

And life is what you make it.

Let’s find the sunny side of men

Or be believers in it

A light there is in every soul

That takes the pains to win it

Oh! There is slumbering good in all

And we perchance may wake it

Our hand contains the magic wand

This life is what we make it.

Then here’s to those whose loving hearts

Shed life and joy about them

Thanks be to them for countless gems

We never had known without them

Oh this should be a happy world

To all who may partake it

The fault’s your own if it is not-

For life is what we make it.
