Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------4

Little deeds of kindness,
Little words of love,
Make our world an Eden
Like the Heav'n above. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------8
