One Little Coin

    “One Little Coin,” Friend, Sept. 2002, 31

    One Little Coin

    One little coin doesn’t seem like much

    when lying all alone.

    But add another and another and another,

    and someday when you’re grown,

    You’ll find that you have saved enough

    to serve a mission for the Lord.

    And you’ll be glad that you made sure

    it was a goal you could afford.

    When you’re young, a mission

    seems very far away;

    But if you save with that goal in mind,

    One day you can say,

    “I’m glad that I decided

    to work and save and learn

    so I could serve and be ready

    when it was my turn.”
