    My Heavenly Father Loves Me

    Expressively

    1. Whenever I hear the song of a bird

    Or look at the blue, blue sky,

    Whenever I feel the rain on my face

    Or the wind as it rushes by,

    Whenever I touch a velvet rose

    Or walk by our lilac tree,

    I’m glad that I live in this beautiful world

    Heav’nly Father created for me.

    2. He gave me my eyes that I might see

    The color of butterfly wings.

    He gave me my ears that I might hear

    The magical sound of things.

    He gave me my life, my mind, my heart:

    I thank him rev’rently

    For all his creations, of which I’m a part.

    Yes, I know Heav’nly Father loves me.
