Gently, gently kneel and pray,
Gently come and go;
Jesus Christ is watching us,
He would have it so.

Refrain

Gently, gently shine the stars,
Gently grow the flowers,
Gently smiles the love of God,
And His love is ours!

Kindly, kindly speak to all,
At our work or play;
Jesus Christ can always hear
Every word we say.

Refrain

Dearly, dearly let us love
Every one we know—
Brothers, sisters, friends we are—
Jesus makes us so.

Refrain

Sweetly, sweetly sing the praise
Of our glorious king,
With our hearts and with our voice;
Jesus hears us sing.
