Representative Text

1 Flowers nod and smile today,—
We do, too; we do, too;
They make bright a lonely way;
We do, too.

We do, too! we do, too!
Smile and sing, and so should you!
Pretty flow’rs make glad the hours,
So should you!

2 Pretty song-birds love to sing,—
We do, too; we do, too;
Joy to many hearts they bring;
We do, too. [Refrain]

3 Sunbeams love to gleam and glow,—
We do, too; we do, too;
Precious blessings they bestow;
We do, too. [Refrain]

4 Jesus loves the pure and good,—
We do, too; we do, too;
For the right He always stood;
We do, too. [Refrain]
