Song text altered from "Small and Simple Things" hymn text.
Verse 1:

A gentle hand, a healing word,
compassion in a knowing prayer,
a shoulder side-by-side with yours
to help loss and sorrow bear
The steady gaze of friendly eyes,
a deep and understanding smile;
a fav’rite scripture shared with love,
a friend who listens for a while:

Chorus:

The tender mercies of the Lord
are often small and simple things.
Great miracles are brought to pass
by quiet, steady, means.

Verse 2:

As tiny as a mustard seed,
new faith seems weak, the path too long.
But if we humbly seek His help,
the Lord will make our weak things strong.
A little cup of water pure,
a single piece of broken bread:
Small emblems of God’s greatest gift
refresh and keep our spirits fed.

Chorus:

The tender mercies of the Lord
are often small and simple things.
Great miracles are brought to pass
by quiet, loving, steady, simple means.
