, no. 228


1. Whenever I hear the song of a birdOr look at the blue, blue sky,Whenever I feel the rain on my faceOr the wind as it rushes by,Whenever I touch a velvet roseOr walk by our lilac tree,I’m glad that I live in this beautiful worldHeav’nly Father created for me.
2. He gave me my eyes that I might seeThe color of butterfly wings.He gave me my ears that I might hearThe magical sound of things.He gave me my life, my mind, my heart:I thank him rev’rentlyFor all his creations, of which I’m a part.Yes, I know Heav’nly Father loves me.
