Representative Text

1 Ev’rything gives, in its own happy way,
Something to bless or to cheer;
Birds in the trees, and the flowers so gay,
Taught by the Father so dear.

Give, give, gladly we’ll give!
Give, give, gladly we’ll give!
We live in giving,
We give in living,
We’ll give, gladly give!

2 Ev’rything gives, be it ever so small,
Fragrance, or beauty, or song;
Never in selfishness keeping it all,
Passing the good right along. [Refrain]

3 Ev’rything gives of the best that it can,
Streamlet and green waving tree;
This is a part of God’s wonderful plan,
Sharing with love full and free. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
