"Little Things"

       
  1. Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
And the beauteous land,
And the beauteous land.
 
 
2.
And the little moments,
Humble tho' they be,
Make the mighty ages
Of eternity,
Of eternity.
 
  3. So our little errors,
Lead the soul away,
From the paths of virtue,
Oft in sin to stray,
Oft in sin to stray.
 
  4. Little deeds of kindness,
Little words of love,
Make our earth an Eden
Like the Heaven above,
Like the Heaven above.
 
  5. Little seeds of mercy,
Sown by youthful hands,
Grow to bless the nations
Far in heathen lands,
Far in heathen lands.
