A Brother's Hand
George B Staff
When you’re feeling all downhearted,
And life’s hard to understand,
Say, it’s fine to feel the pressure
Of a Brother’s friendly hand.
Just to know he sympathises,
Though he doesn’t say a word;
How it starts your courage climbing,
As your heart is touched and stirred.
With an arm across your shoulders,
And a grip you love to find,
How it makes you feel the bounding
Of the hearts of humankind.
It is just a little token
Of an ever growing band,
For there’s faith and hope and courage
In a Brother’s friendly hand.
