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.
