Goodness knows that sometimes the greatest thing
in the world is a smile from a child,
So Goodness laughs a lot.
Goodness knows that it’s easier to break
a child than to mend one,
So Goodness handles with care.
Goodness knows that everyone deserves a second chance,
And sometimes a third and fourth chance, too.
Goodness knows that we all need friends in this world,
So Goodness is determined to be friendly.
Goodness knows that only people count,
So Goodness never counts out people.
Goodness knows that life is sometimes lonely,
But we are never alone.
And when the sorrows of life are left unexplained,
it’s still not too much to bear,
For we can trust that Goodness knows.
