For Little Friends

By Diana Eckersell Janson


I’m Reverent at Church

I’m reverent at Church
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 reverent at Church
From my head
(hands on head)
To my toes.
(touch toes)
