1. Little beam of rosy light,
Who has made you shine so bright?
Little bird, with golden wing,
Who has taught you how to sing?

R: 'Tis our Father, God above.
He has made us, He is love.

2. Little blossom, sweet and rare,
Who has made you bloom so fair?
Little streamlet in the dell,
Who has made you, can you tell?

3. Little child, with smile so bright,
Who has made your heart so light?
Who has taught you how to sing,
Like the merry bird of spring?
