I’m Always Reverent

I’m always reverent
From my head (hands on head)
To my toes. (touch toes)
When I walk, (walk quietly in place)
I step quietly
As I go.
When I speak,
Words come softly, (put finger to lips)
Not loud and bold. (turn head from side to side)
When I listen, (cup hand to ear)
Lips stay shut (zip lips)
And my arms I fold. (fold arms)
When I pray,
My head bows (bow head)
And my eyes are closed. (close eyes)
I’m always reverent
From my head (hands on head)
To my toes. (touch toes)
