To Think about Jesus

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Reverently

1. It shouldn’t be hard to sit very still

And think about Jesus, his cross on the hill,

And all that he suffered and did for me;

It shouldn’t be hard to sit quietly.

[Chorus]

It shouldn’t be hard, even though I am small,

To think about Jesus, not hard at all.

2. I think of the miles he walked in the dust,

And children he helped to love and to trust;

It shouldn’t be hard to sit tall in my seat,

To listen politely, to quiet my feet.

[Chorus]

It shouldn’t be hard, even though I am small,

To think about Jesus, not hard at all.
