  1. 1. Can a little child like me
    Thank the Father fittingly?
    Yes, oh yes! Be good and true,
    Patient, kind in all you do!
    Love the Lord and do your part;
    Learn to say with all your heart:
  2. 2. For the fruit upon the tree,
    For the birds that sing of thee,
    For the sunshine warm and bright,
    For the day and for the night,
    For the joyful work and true
    That a little child may do,
  3. Father, we thank thee!
    Father, we thank thee!
    Father in Heaven, we thank thee!
  4. Words: Mary M. Dodge, about 1831-1905
    Music: W. K. Bassford, 1839-1902
