I’m just a little flower

1
I’m just a little flower
With open face;
I’m fully turned to God,
Receiving grace.
I don’t know how to try—
This is my case—
I’m just a lily trusting God.

我是小花一朵,敞開我臉。

我完全轉向神,接受恩典。

不知如何完全,就是這樣。

我是小花一朵,我信靠神!

This was my favorite children song to sing growing up in Taipei :)

I learned this song at the age of 7 in 1978 while living in fort Lauderdale, Fla in the children's meeting of the local church.

God is simple, the enemy is complicated. Lord Jesus, remind to be so simple in front of You. Cause me to simply love You as I did when I was in the children's meeting, just like a little lily flower.

When I first sang this song I was thinking about Lilly (an adult in our church).

I first heard this song as a teenager in New Zealand when some brothers were teaching us the guitar. I have since then always come back and gained encouragement from the words which reminds me that our function is just to shine! - To be a vessel to contain God's life - a mirror beholding and reflecting the glory of the Lord. May we be so simple not to care for 'knowing' or 'striving' so much - to simply feed on Him and He will take care of us.

I have been searching for all the verses and am so happy to have found them.

Does anyone know who was the composer of this beautiful song?

I have always appreciated this small song, especially while I was uncomfortably pregnant with my daughter. All I could do was trust the Lord, and sing Him this song in simplicity was a big help. I had forgotten all the stanzas, so I'm thankful to the Lord that Jamal shared them.

I appreciate that the Lord has called the saints to create this website reference and use it often. Thank you.

This song is a good reminder of our position before the Lord... to be a simple, open vessel, turned toward Him every day! Lord Jesus, make us poor in spirit and willing to receive whatever You have in store for us today.

I had never heard this song before, and appreciate the words very much. Thank you, Jamal, for the lyrics you added on May 21, 2010.

Thx for this song. I was supplied. This song makes me return to Him and I know I'm just a little flower.
