Ribbons For Boys And Girls


Keep writing for the boy
And I'll keep singing for the girl

Write ribbons and ribbons
That will turn into beautiful bows
Multicoloured bows for his kite
Flying in the cleared air

I'll sing ribbons
And ribbons too
While saying goodnight
Scarlet ribbons for her hair

An air so soothing
It will quiet them to sleep
This boy and girl
Without a care

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
