The Birdie's Song

Representative Text

1 I heard a happy birdie sing,
Praise God! Praise God!
It made the woods with music ring,
Praise God! Praise God!

Birdie sing: Praise the Lord!
Birdie sing: Praise the Lord!
For our hearts take up the song enchanting:
Birdie sing: Praise the Lord!
Birdie sing: Praise the Lord!
Not a voice should in the chorus be wanting.

2 I heard it sing another tune,
Trust God! Trust God!
It bro't the lesson sweet of June,
Trust God! Trust God! [Chorus]

3 The sweetest note of all she sang,
Love God! Love God!
And in my heart the chorus rang,
Love God! Love God! [Chorus]
