    I Can Be Reverent

    I can be reverent, from my head
    1

    to my toes.

    When I walk, I step quietly as I go.

    When I speak, words come softly,
    4

    not loud and bold.

    When I listen,
    6

    lips stay shut
    7

    and my arms I fold.
    8

    When I pray, my head bows
    9

    and my eyes are closed.

    I can be reverent, from my head
    11

    to my toes.
