This is one verse of a traditional Shaker song. I love the lyrics, and it is a great song for using some simple hand motions or American Sign Language with. I learned it from a favorite CMN musician friend of mine, Sue Ribaudo, who recorded it on her CD "In The Same Boat."
Love is Little (traditional, Shaker)
Love is little, love is low,
Love will make our spirits grow. (repeat)
Grow in peace, grow in light,
Love will do the thing that's right. (repeat)
Our songs for children about peace and justice, resolving conflicts, and celebrating our global family are more important than ever in these troubled times. These Peace Resources are intended to help us all move forward with hope and tools for song and action as we work together to build a healthier, more peaceful world.
