To Think about Jesus

It shouldn’t be hard to sit very still

And think about Jesus, His cross on the hill,

And all that He suffered and did for me;

It shouldn’t be hard to sit quietly.

I think of the miles He walked in the dust,

And children He helped to love and to trust;

It shouldn’t be hard to sit tall in my seat,

To listen politely, to quiet my feet.

It shouldn’t be hard, even though I am small,

To think about Jesus, not hard at all.
