Speak gently. It is better by far

to rule by love than fear.


Speak gently. Let no harsh word mar

the good you may do here.


Speak gently to the young, for they

will have enough to bear;

pass through this life as best they may,

’tis full of anxious care.


Speak gently to the aged one

Grieve not the care-worn heart,

whose sand of life are nearly run,

let such in peace depart.


Speak gently, kindly to the poor,

let no harsh tone be heard.

They have enough they must endure

without an unkind word.


Speak gently…’tis a little thing

dropped in the heart’s deep well;

The good, the joy that it may bring

eternity shall tell.
