The Dear Little Birds Are As Glad As Can


The dear little birds are as glad as can be;
The woodlands are ringing with the sweet melody;
And this is the message, oh, hear it anew,
Our Father above loves the children too.

Refrain:
Oh, sweet is the story
We sing to his glory,
We love him, we love him because it is true;
Our jubilant story
We sing to his glory,
Our Father above loves the children too.

The beautiful flowers looking up to the sky,
Are giving their sweetness to each passer by,
And breathing the lesson so precious and true,
Our Father above loves the children too. [Refrain]

But better than all, in the Bible we see
The love of our Saviour for you and for me,
Because Jesus came, oh, we know it is true,
Our Father above loves the children too. [Refrain]

Then come, children, come on this festival day,
And joyfully praise him, and trustfully pray;
We’ll sing the glad story with joy ever new,
Our Father above loves the children too. [Refrain]
