Representative Text

1 Our loving Heav’nly Father
All living things has made,
The smallest of His creatures,
Need never be afraid.

He cares for the birds and flowers
And for His children too;
He cares for me, so kind is He,
And He will care for you.

2 God loves the little babies,
He’s never far away,
He gives them tender mothers
To watch them day by day. [Refrain]

3 Our Heav’nly Father gives us
Our food, our clothes, and friends,
And all things good and pleasant,
In tender love He sends. [Refrain]
