1 In the clear, cool water
Little fishes swim,
Darting now in sunshine,
Now in shadows dim;
Under rocks they’re hiding,
Merrily at play:—
God, who made them, loves the,
Cares for them alway;
God, who made them, loves the,
Cares for them alway.

2 In the little garden
Seeds begin to grow,
Upward crowd the green leaves,
Down the rootlets go;
Buds and blossoms follow,
Making earth so gay:—
God, who made them, loves the,
Cares for them alway;
God, who made them, loves the,
Cares for them alway.

3 On the grassy meadows
See the lambs at play;
Mother sheep is watching,
Never far away;
Bossy calves are cropping
Clovers all the day:—
God, the Life of all life,
Cares for them alway;
God, the Life of all life,
Cares for them alway.

4 In the leafy branches
Cozy nests are hung,
Full of baby birdlings,
By the breezes swung;
Hear them sweetly chirping,
Happy all the day:—
God, the Life of all life,
Cares for them alway;
God, the Life of all life,
Cares for them alway.

5 In a tiny cradle,
Curtained round with white,
Lies a rosy baby,
Dimples, sweet and bright;
Hear her cooing softly,
Like a gentle dove:—
God, who made the round world,
Gives me light and love;
God, who made the round world,
Gives me light and love.
