A Little Child May Know

Melody -

Jane E. Leeson, 1807-1882

1. A little child may know
Our Father's name of Love;
'Tis written on the earth below,
And on the sky above.

2. Around me when I look,
His handiwork I see;
This world is like a picture-book
To teach his love to me.
  3. The thousand little flowers
Within our garden found,
The rainbow and the soft spring showers,
And every pleasant sound;

4. The birds that sweetly sing,
The moon that shines by night,
With every tiny living thing
Rejoicing in the light;

5. And every star above,
Set in the deep blue sky,
All tell me that our God is love,
And tell me he is nigh.
