A Beautiful Life

Bill Monroe

Each day I'll do a golden deed
By helping those who are in need

My life on earth is but a span
And so I'll do the best I can.

Life's evening sun is sinking low
A few more days and I must go  
To meet the deeds that I have done
Where there will be no setting sun.

Verse2.. (same chords as verse 1)
To be a child of God each day
My light must shine along the way
I'll sing His praise while the ages roll
And strive to help some troubled soul.


The only life that will endure
Is one that's kind and good and pure
And for God, I'll take my stand
Each day I'll lend a helping hand.


While going down life's weary road
I'll try to lift some traveller's load
I'll try to turn the night to day
Make flowers bloom along the way.
