Little steps from day to day,
In the blessèd Gospel way,
Little prayers we learn to say,
Draw us near to Jesus.

Refrain

Stepping, stepping on we go,
Drawing near to Jesus;
Little pilgrims here below,
Looking unto Jesus.

Little thoughts on airy wing,
Little songs of praise we sing,
Little words to deeds that spring,
Draw us near to Jesus.

Refrain

Little buds will make the flowers,
Little drops the cooling showers;
So these little steps of ours
Draw us near to Jesus.

Refrain
