protect the little sparrow
for on this winter’s day,
he hides within the little spruce
concealed from all harms way!
shield him from the bitter winds
against the stormy gale,
the cold wet snow that blows and blasts
oh offer him a safe warm dale!
let him find the food I’ve left
to keep his belly filled,
for this my little gift I give
even though it’s frosty chilled.
As the night begins to fall
and branches fill with snow,
help him find his way to rest
till morning light begins to glow
