What the dew is to the flower,
Gentle words are to the soul.
Such a blessing to your neighbor
You should never withhold.

Gentle words, so kindly spoken,
Often soothe the troubled mind;
While a friendship can be broken
By words that are unkind.

Ever-loving, Gentle Spirit,
Thou my constant guardian be;
So that I might do to others
As I'd have them do to me.
