"WHAT HAVE WE DONE TODAY?"

Verse 1
We will do so much in the years to come,
Oh, but what have we done today?
We will give our time to help some poor needy one,
Oh, but what did we give today?
We will lift men's hearts, and dry their tears,
We will give them hope instead of fear.
We will speak sweet words of love and cheer,
Oh, but what did we speak today?
Tell me, what can we do today?
When all is said and done, at the setting of the sun
Oh Lord, what have we done?
Verse 2
We will be so kind in the Afterwhile, yes we will,
Oh, but what have we done today? -
We will bring to each lonely life a smile,
Oh, but what [id we bring, what can we bring]today?
We will live the truth [live the truth], though it may hurt [well, it may hurt],
We will live our faith [live our faith] for all its worth,
We shall feed the hungering souls of Earth,
Oh, but whom have we fed today?
Bridge
We've only one lifetime, tell me what we gonna do with it?
We've only one lifetime, tell me what we gonna make of it?
Verse 3
We will reap such joys in the by-and-by,
Oh, but what have we sown today? -
We will build us mansions way up in the sky,
Oh, but what have we built [what have we built] today [today]?
Oh, how sweet [oh how sweet it is] in dreams [in dreams] to rest,
But right here and now we must do our best.
There's one thing our souls must ask, just one request,
Oh, what have we done today? What can we do?
What can we do today ? Yeah.
What [ooh what have we done] today?
