    “Give,” Said the Little Stream

    Cheerfully

    1. “Give,” said the little stream,

    “Give, oh! give, give, oh! give.”

    “Give,” said the little stream,

    As it hurried down the hill;

    “I’m small, I know, but wherever I go

    The fields grow greener still.”

    [Chorus]

    Singing, singing all the day,

    “Give away, oh! give away.”

    Singing, singing all the day,

    “Give, oh! give away.”

    2. “Give,” said the little rain,

    “Give, oh! give, give, oh! give.”

    “Give,” said the little rain,

    As it fell upon the flow’rs;

    “I’ll raise their drooping heads again,”

    As it fell upon the flow’rs.

    [Chorus]

    Singing, singing all the day,

    “Give away, oh! give away.”

    Singing, singing all the day,

    “Give, oh! give away.”

    3. Give, then, as Jesus gives,

    Give, oh! give, give, oh! give.

    Give, then, as Jesus gives;

    There is something all can give.

    Do as the streams and blossoms do:

    For God and others live.

    [Chorus]

    Singing, singing all the day,

    “Give away, oh! give away.”

    Singing, singing all the day,

    “Give, oh! give away.”
