While President Howard W. Hunter is well-known for his love of all the hymns, President Thomas S. Monson recalls that one of his favorites was "Have I Done Any Good in the World Today?"
For the 1985 hymnal, the committee altered a line of lyrics in President Hunter's favorite hymn: the line which now reads "Only he who does something helps others to live. / To God, each good work will be known" originally read, "Only he who does something is worthy to live, / The world has no use for a drone."
The problematic lyrics were changed in order to reflect that life is sacred and needs no justification but that able-bodied people shouldn't be idle.
