"Tiny Seeds" is a positive children's song about growing faith. Just as tiny seeds must put forth effort in order to grow; so must we put forth effort in order to increase our faith. This song has three verses and a chorus. Verse one introduces the concept of "tiny seeds" and how they work in order to grow. Verse two makes the comparison between the child and the "tiny seed". Verse three is the desire to put forth specific kinds of effort in order to increase faith. The chorus is both a statement and a promise that if you pray, work, hope and believe -- your faith will grow!
Lyrics: Verse One
Tiny seeds pushing up against the soil.
Tiny seeds striving hard to feel the sun.
Stretching up; stretching out.
Tiny seeds seem to shout.
We have hope and believe we will grow!
Like the seeds that are working in the soil.
I am striving to do my best on earth.
But, some times when it's hard and I feel I need faith,
I just think of the tiny seeds!
I must work like the seeds to show my Savior.
I have hope and believe in doing right.
And, I'll pray every day and each night to my Lord.
So, my faith like the seeds will grow!
Pray, with all your heart.
Work, with all your strength.
Hope, with all your soul.
Believe, and you'll see.
Your faith will grow.
