HE GIVETH TO ALL




I asked the little joyous bird,
Who taught him how to fly,
And sing his songs so sweetly in
The bright blue morning sky;
He told me it. was God above,
Who gave to him his wing,
And taught him how to build his nest,
And taught him how to sing.


I asked the little lovely flower
That grew beneath my feet,
Who dressed her in her velvet coat
And gave her fragrance sweet;
She told me it was God above,
Who clothed her with such care,
And taught her how to sweetly breathe
Upon the evening air.


I asked the little twinkling star
Who taught him how to shine,
And run his course so steadily
Along his proper line;
He told me it was God above,
Who bade him shine so bright,
And trim his little tiny lamp
To cheer the winter night.


Since all things, then, look up to Godó
The flower, the star, the bird;
And all obey Hie holy laws,
And listen to His word;
I, too, although a child, will try
His bidding to obey,
That I may learn to please Him, too,
And serve as well as they.
