What they seem to say

Full Text

1 Have you seen the sunbeams shining,
Shining all along the way?
Have you ever stopped to listen
What they always seem to say?
Ev'ry beam of beauty gives us
Just a glimpse of heav'n above;
Ev'ry little sunbeam whispers:
God is wisdom, God is love.

Chorus:
God is wisdom, God is love;
Read it in the stars above;
May the children's hearts reecho:
God is wisdom, God is love.

2 Have you heard the wild birds singing,
Singing all along the way?
Have you ever stopped to listen
What they always seem to say?
Ev'ry little songster gives us
Just a glimpse of heav'n above;
Ev'ry little wild bird whispers;
God is wisdom, God is love. [Chorus]

2 Have you seen the flowers growing,
Growing all along the way?
Have you ever stopped to listen
What they always seem to say?
Ev'ry pretty blossom gives us
Just a glimpse of heav'n above;
Ev'ry little flower whispers;
God is wisdom, God is love. [Chorus]
