Representative Text

1 The daisies in the meadow
Watch the shining sun all day,
And try to be just like him,
Each one in his own small way.

So, like the daisies, the daisies bright and free,
Let us look up where Christ we see,
Faithfully trying, like him, like him to be,
Each one in his own small way.

2 The roses in the garden
Blossom fair and sweet today;
They give their perfume freely,
Each one in his own small way.

So, like the roses the roses sweet and fair,
Bright, smiling faces let us wear,
Giving our gladness, our gladness ev’rywhere,
Each one in his own small way.

3 O loving heav’nly Father,
Send us blessings day by day,
And we will try to serve thee,
Each one in his own small way.

O loving Father, send blessings day by day;
Listen, and hear us when we pray,
And we will praise thee, will praise thy name alway,
Each one in his own small way.
