Representative Text

1 The little flow’rs peep thro’ the ground
To say to people all around,
“Your heav’nly Father send His love
To you and you and you.”

2 The birds come back each happy spring
To say to people as they sing,
“Your heav’nly Father send His love
To you and you and you.”

3 The trees are dressed in gowns so new;
They say, “We have a message, too,
Your heav’nly Father send His love
To you and you and you.”
