The Master’s Song
by Richard Rome Bealey, 1866
This world is so hard and so stony,
That if a man is to get through,
He need have the courage of Nelson,
And plenty of Job’s patience too.
But a man who is kind to another
And cheerfully helps him along,
We’ll claim as a man and a brother,
And here's to his health in a song.

And here’s to his health, here’s to his health
And here’s to his health in a song.

Chorus:
And here’s to his health, here’s to his health
And here’s to his health in a song.

This life is as cheerless as winter
To those who are cold in the heart,
but a man who is warm in his nature
Bids winter for ever depart
The ground that he treads on will blossom,
Till beauty around him shall throng;
God Bless such a man and a brother,
And here’s to his health in a song.

And here’s to his health; here’s to his health
And here’s to his health in a song.

Chorus

As clouds that in sunshine are open,
And silver’d by light passing through,
So men who are generous in spirit,
Are bless’d by the good deeds they do;
There’s nothing like helping another
For getting one’s own self along;
Who does this is truly a brother.
And here’s to his health in a song.
And here’s to his health; here’s to his health
And here’s to his health in a song.

Chorus

There’s something in other men’s sorrows
That strengthens a man who is true,
They melt him at first, and then mould him,
The manliest actions do.
There’s lots of both sorrow and trouble,
Our poor fellow-creatures among;
But God makes the blessings all double
To those who help others along.

All, standing, sing Chorus.
