16048. Is The World Any Better?

1 Is the world any bet­ter, my bro­ther,
Because you are pass­ing this way?
Are you try­ing to win
From the thrall­dom of sin,
Some wan­d’ring one now gone astray?

Refrain:
Is the world any bright­er,
Men’s cares any light­er,
Because you are pass­ing this way?
Is your God-giv­en light
Shining stea­dy and bright,
To make the world bet­ter to­day?

2 Is the world any bright­er, my bro­ther,
More cheer­ful because of your song?
As you tra­vel life’s road,
Did you light­en the load
Of bur­dened ones pass­ing along? [Refrain]

3 ’Tis the time of seed-sow­ing, my bro­ther;
Tomorrow the Reap­er may come.
Sow the seeds here and there,
Scatter truth ev­ery­where,
For the day of the great Har­vest Home. [Refrain]
