Dropping Pennies

Representative Text

1 Hear the pennies dropping!
Listen while they fall;
Ev'ry one for Jesus,
He will get them all,

Dropping, dropping, dropping, dropping;
Hear the pennies fall!
Ev'ry one for Jesus,
He will get them all.

2 Dropping, dropping ever.
From each little hand;
'Tis our gift to Jesus,
From his little band. [Refrain]

3 Now, while we are little.
Pennies are are store;
But, when we are older,
Lord, we'll give thee more. [Refrain]

4 Tho, we've little money.
We can give him love;
He will own our off'ring,
Smiling from above. [Refrain]
