Representative Text

1 Little eyes, little eyes,
Softly close in worship now;
Fold the arms, bow the head,
While we whisper soft and low,
God is here, and happy we,
In His presence e'er may be.

2 Little ears, little ears,
Listen while He speaks to you;
Gentle words, full of peace,
Come to those who love Him true;
God is love, and we must be
Little foll'wers glad and free.

3 Little heart, little heart,
Ready be to take Him in;
Little hands, busy be,
Leading souls from paths of sin;
God will help you every day,
Guide you in His blessed way.

4 Little eyes, little ears,
Be to Jesus ever true;
Little hands, little feet,
Best of errands wait for you;
God fill heart and life each day,
Love us, guide us in this way.
