Go the Second Mile

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


1. When there is a task to do, do it with a smile.

Do more than you are asked to do and go the second mile.

2. In your work and in your play, try it for a while.

You’ll find that you’ll be happy when you go the second mile.
