A little brook that murmurs lowly

Representative Text

1 A little brook that murmurs lowly,
A little stream that trickles slowly
Shall some day reach old ocean’s brine,
Shall reach old ocean’s brine;
A little Samuel, living solely
To minister in office holy,
Becomes a messenger divine,
A messenger divine.

A little act is but the seed
Of great and glorious ends;
A little fact supplies the needs of him,
Who heav’nward wends.

2 A little light tho’ dimly flashing
Across the waters, wild and dashing,
Will guide the sails thro’ storm and tide,
Will guide thro’ storm and tide;
A little life on God reclining,
Upon the sea of turmoil shining,
Will tell salvation far and wide,
Salvation far and wide. [Refrain]

3 A little isolated flower,
In beauty, breathes its fragrant power;
And charms the trav’ler on the way,
And charms him on the way;
The little stars, unseen at twilight
Bedeck the lofty vaults with skylight
Until the dawning of the day,
The dawning of the day. [Refrain]
