    The Way to Bethlehem

    December 15

    “Give,” said the little stream,

    “Give, oh! give, give, oh! give.”

    “Give,” said the little stream,

    As it hurried down the hill;

    “I’m small, I know, but wherever I go

    The fields grow greener still.”

    “Give,” said the little rain,

    “Give, oh! give, give, oh! give.”

    “Give,” said the little rain,

    As it fell upon the flow’rs;

    “I’ll raise their drooping heads again,”

    As it fell upon the flow’rs.

    Give, then, as Jesus gives,

    Give, oh! give, give, oh! give.

    Give, then, as Jesus gives;

    There is something all can give.

    Do as the streams and blossoms do:

    For God and others live.

    Singing, singing all the day,

    “Give away, oh! give away.”

    Singing, singing all the day,

    “Give, oh! give away.”
