The birds upon the tree tops

  The birds upon the tree tops sing their song;
The angels chant their chorus all day long;
The flowers in the garden blend their hue,
So why shouldn’t I, why shouldn’t you praise Him too?

Strawberry Shortcake's favorite song from back home in the Westwood Jr High/Elyria West High School school district, before our family was destroyed by being forced to leave it all frozen in time back there, and she was 4 yrs old (aka Shorty, Fat Yab, Fat Hands, Heavy Hands, Big Baby, Rollie Pollie). I can still feel the thub I'd get from one of her quadruple thick fat little hands if I kidded around for too long on this. I can still see her two big brown dinner plates looking up at me from way down at my waist.

I use to sing this song is the First Church of God in Harvey, Illinois when I was a little girl and couldn't Whole Song because I'm teaching it to my great grandma baby.


I used to sing this song with my grandfather before church! Great childhood memory!


I loved this song growing up. From a child's memory, I thought it said, "...the angels in their chorus all day long, the flowers in the garden lend their hue..." so it's good to know what the words really are. Ha ha!

I am so glad to find this song. I have been teaching it for years but only knew the first line and end ,,,the birdies in the tree tops sing their songs the birdies in the tree tops all day long the birdies in the tree tops praise the Lord so why can't I why can't you praise Him too.. I never knew the other lines and I am thrilled to learn them. I learned the song at Bible to Youth camp in Union Town, PA . Uncle Davey the camp Director taught it to us. Praise the Lord! I love singing and teaching it.

This was a favourite of mine about 50 years ago as well. I am now doing research and writing on ecotheology and a number of theologians stress the fact that all of creation praises God just by being what it is, a witness to God's creativity. Whenever we worship, we are joining our voices to an unceasing universal praise. Indeed, this little chorus sums up this profound idea in such a simple way!
