Just a little word of kindness,
just a little word of love,
just a little smile of tenderness,
all are blessings from above.
Just a little thought of comfort,
just a token that you care,
just a little gesture of sympathy,
may be answer to a prayer.
Just a little smile of happiness,
just a little song of peace,
just a word of praise at eventide,
will give the soul release.
For the little bit of kindness
and the little bit of care,
the little bit of tenderness,
are the essence of a prayer.
