1. When a little seed is planted and given tender care,
It will sprout and grow and flourish into a plant so fair.
Faith is planting gospel truths; like little seeds they’ll grow.
We will feel them swell within our hearts until the truth we know.
2. When a little tree is growing, it still needs patient care
While its branches stretch and blossom with fruit for us to share.
Faith is growing righteously, the way that Jesus taught,
Til we harvest blessings of His love, the fruits that we have sought.
