1 Scatter smiles, bright smiles
As you pass on your way,
Thro’ this world of toil and care;
Like the beams of the morning that gently play,
They will leave a sunlight there.

Scatter smiles, bright smiles,
Scatter smiles as you pass on your way;
Scatter smiles, bright smiles,
Scatter smiles, bright smiles.

2 Scatter smiles, bright smiles,
’Tis but little they cost;
But your heart may never know
What a joy they may carry to weary ones
Who are pale with want and woe. [Refrain]

3 Scatter smiles, bright smiles
O’er the grave of the past,
Where the orphan’s treasure lies;
In the tear drop that glistens there, light will shine,
As the rainbow paints the skies. [Refrain]

4 Scatter smiles, bright smiles,
O’er the young who have strayed,
From the path where once they trod;
You may lead to the fountain of truth again,
You may bring them home to God. [Refrain]
