A second verse is provided in "Twenty-one songs from many lands" by Roger Fiske and J.P.B.Dobbs. This second verse is attributed to 'RF' (one of the compilers)

'Tis the gift to have sympathy between me and you,
'Tis the gift to keep at what you ought to do;
And if you have your eyes on the skies above,
'Twill be in the valley of joy and love.
