Then Wake Up! and Do Something More

I found this gem online and you are going to love it!  It's very catchy and hard to stop listening to.  It's a beloved hymn with a new twist performed by Alex Boyle and Carmen Rasmussen Herbert.   

And the lyrics are really one of the secrets to being happy.

Have you done any good in the world today? 
Have you helped anyone in need? 
Have you cheered up the sad, or made someone feel glad? 
If not you have failed in deed!
Has anyone's burden been lightened today...
Because you were willing to share? 
Has the sick or the weary, been helped on their way? 
When they needed your help, were you there? 
THEN Wake up! and do something more, 
Than dream of your mansions above. 
Doing good is a pleasure, a joy beyond measure, 
A blessing of goodness and love.
 
There are chances for work all around just now,
Opportunities right in our way.
Do not let them pass by, saying, "Sometime I'll try,"
But go and do something today.
'Tis noble of man to work and to give;
Love's labor has merit alone.
Only he who does something helps others to live.
To God each good work will be known...THEN Wake up! and do something more, 
Than dream of your mansions above. 
Doing good is a pleasure, a joy beyond measure, 
A blessing of goodness and love.

Have you done any good in your world today?
