You are of more value than many sparrows.@Luke 12:7

Ma­ria Straub, 1874.

Pro­vi­dence Sol­o­mon W. Straub (🔊 pdf nwc).

God sees the little sparrow fall,
It meets His tender view;
If God so loves the little birds,
I know He loves me, too.


He loves me, too, He loves me, too,
I know He loves me, too;
Because He loves the little things,
I know He loves me, too.

He paints the lily of the field,
Perfumes each lily bell;
If He so loves the little flow’rs,
I know He loves me well.


God made the little birds and flow’rs,
And all things large and small;
He’ll not forget His little ones,
I know He loves them all.
