Can a Little Child like Me?



  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. [Chorus]

    Father, we thank thee!

    Father, we thank thee!

    Father in Heaven, we thank thee!

  3. 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,
