23. Give, Little Sunbeams

1 Give, little sunbeams, golden bright,
Give to the world your cheery light.
Give, little welcome drops of rain,
Till thirsty meadows smile again.

Giving and loving, loving and giving,
So we find the good of living:
Giving our hearts at the Saviour’s call;
Love is the very best gift of all.

2 Give, little flowers, fresh and fair,
Breathing sweet perfume on the air.
Give, little birds, your spring-time glee,
Filling the woods with melody. [Refrain]

3 Give, little children, day by day,
Helping each other as you may.
What can we give our Saviour King?
Love is the best gift we can bring. [Refrain]
