Can you count the stars?

Sunday Hymn Post
  1. Can you count the stars of evening
    That are shining in the sky?
    Can you count the clouds that daily
    Over all the world go by?
    God the Lord, who doth not slumber,
    Keepeth all the boundless number;
    But He careth more for thee,
    But He careth more for thee.
  2. Can you count the birds that warble
    In the sunshine all the day?
    Can you count the little fishes
    That in sparkling waters play?
    God the Lord their number knoweth,
    For each one His care He showeth;
    Shall He not remember thee?
    Shall He not remember thee?
  3. Can you count the many children
    In their little beds at night,
    Who without a thought of sorrow
    Rise again at morning light?
    God the Lord, who dwells in heaven,
    Loving care to each has given;
    He has not forgotten thee,
    He has not forgotten thee.

  1. We sing this to my children as a lullaby. One of my favorites and so very comforting.
