Representative Text

1 Little modest violet blue,
Spangled o’er with morning dew,
Laughing in the sportive air,
God has made thy leaves so fair;
Little lambs that skip and play
In the meadow fresh and gay,
God protects you by His care,
He has made your fleece so fair.

2 Little star with golden eye,
God has placed thee in the sky;
Little bird with glassy wing,
God has taught thee how to sing;
Little clouds that lightly rest,
On the bosom of the west,
Floating in the summer air,
God has made your form so fair.

3 Little merry, laughing child,
Ever playful, ever wild,
Full of gladness, full of love,
God has made thee, God above;
He thy little spirit keeps,
For He never, never sleeps;
When thy little life is past,
He will take thee home at last.
