Representative Text

1 There's a robin singing
Such a sweet refrain,
From the leafy branches,
'Mid the falling rain,
And in joyous accents
Thus he seems to say,
"I am safe--my Father
Care for me alway!"

Singing, singing,
I belong to Jesus,
I belong to Jesus,
Singing, singing,
And he too is mine.

2 Happy little robin,
Thro' the darkest days,
Looking up and singing
Notes of love and praise,
Somewhere in the heavens,
God's own sun doth shine,
For the bow of promise
Sets the seal divine. [Chorus]

3 He, who o'er his creatures
Tender watch doth keep,
Safely guards his children
When they wake or sleep,
So we'll sing with gladness,
In the sun or show'r,
Trusting in his goodness,
Shielded by his pow'r. [Chorus]
