Only Then Can I Smile

If in the bleakest hour,
Wnen skies grow dark and life dreary,
The heart heavy and the soul weary;
If I can make the day shine brighter,
And in turn deem life's burden lighter,
Then God grant me the power.

If in all that while,
Some word of  mine can dispel the sorrow,
And bring forth hope for each tomorrow;
Then I will know by  some small measure,
My faith in God, life's one sure treasure.
Only then can I smile.
