JUST a LITTLE
Just a little donkey who refused to obey --
Then that animal spoke. He saved his rider that same day.
Just a little cord, hung down outside a wall --
Helped spies to escape, before a city's great fall.
Just a little stone in a shepherd boy's hand,
Flying from a sling, killed a giant of a man.
Just a little servant girl told her master's wife,
What a man could do have a better life.
Just a little maiden unknown on the earth --
God had chosen her to bring a special birth.
Just a little rooster crowed one early day --
Caused a man to cry – bitterly he did pray.
Just a little needle - things shown around a bed --
Clothes sewn for others – someone raised from the dead.
Just a little action, to wash away our sins,
Obeying God's commandments
To show our love.
