Little Flowers Never Worry

My sisters and I grew up singing this song with our dad. It was a regular for us before his Sunday morning sermons. I am not sure why but this song is back in my spirit as its been raining all week.

Rain means so many different things and as I said in a previous post, how do you pray for it when it could mean a flood and destruction for someone else.

But I need the rain of God’s presence all over me and through my life right now. There is not an area that doesn’t need to be soaked by the water of His Holy Spirit. But like the flowers I won’t worry about how loud and boisterous the wind sounds as the rain falls, I will bask in the blessing.

– by Beth Barnard

Little flowers never worry
When the wind begins to blow.
And they never, never cry
When the rain begins to fall.

Oh, it’s wet and oh so cold,
Soon the sun will shine again.
Then they’ll smile unto the world,
For their beauty to behold.

When the clouds begin to gather
And the storm begins to blow,
Little flowers don’t complain,
Though they’re tossing to and fro.

Oh, I guess they’ve learned the secret,
They don’t fret because they know,
If it never, never rained,
Then they’d never, never grow.

So, let it rain, let it rain, let it pour,
Little trouble keep on knocking at my door,
If we’ll learn the right from wrong,
It will help to make us strong.

Lord, please help us learn the secret,
Even little flowers know,
If it never, never rains
Then we’ll never, never grow.

  2. I also grew up singing this song. Although it is very simple, it has been profound for me all through my life. I added this song to a CD I recorded in 2001. If you have any need for a recording of the song I would be glad to email an MP3 of it to you. Blessing to you…

  3. I used to have the piano music for this song and I can’t find it. Do you know where I can get it. My mom LOVES this song. I used to play it and sing it for her. I want to get a copy and have it on file. She wants it to be played at her funeral. PLEASE HELP!

  4. My Mom passed away 5 weeks ago. She sang at church all time time and this song was one of her staples I’ve found the sheet music and a few recordings on line but when my Mom sang it was simple I saw that someone had a recording and would love to have it. When mom was practicing a song she would sing it all the time so I would know it by heart by the time she sang it in church. After she passed away people have told me that they remeber me sitting in the back mouthing the words. I’m glad that this song has brought other people than me good memories.

  9. any body who can help me to find the mp3 format of this song i love the song.

  10. I would love to get the sheet music to this. I grew up with this song as my uncle recorded it when I was young. He is an awesome singer. And because I haven’t gotten it converted to digital I don’t hear it as much as I would like.

  11. I loved this music as a child, when my mom came to visit she taught this song to my daughter, now my daughter wants to sing it in church and I’m in desperate need of the sheet music. Hope you can help me get one. Thanks!

  12. I also LOVE this song; grew up singing it in our church youth group. I would love to get the sheet music and MP3 of this also. I used to have it but my X-husband stole it when he left because he knew how much it meant to me. I have had a rough year battling cancer with more surgery coming very soon. (See Surgeon this Tue) I know that God is in control and helps bring us through all of life’s storms. I have continued to sing this song to myself but would love to hear it sung again and get the sheet music to try to learn to play it on my guitar as I attempt to learn that. LOL Thanks and God Bless!!!

  13. I first heard this melodious song last year rendered by my dearest friend/co-missionary in South Korea. Though I could not catch and follow all the lyrics but the melody was beautiful as he was playing the guitar along with his singing. Through his music, of which this song happened to be part, and its beautiful and echoing lyrics I learnt to appreciate music even more.

    Tonight I was listening to a sermon presented by one of my best preachers,pastor Henry Wright,about the Holy Spirit, and the line in this song which says ‘so let it rain,let it rain,let it pour’ reminded me of that sermon,and coincidentally at my church this week we are praying for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. May we gladly receive God’s spirit with all IT has and is.

    As I’m growing I worry alot about my future though I know it’s in God’s hands. My prayer is to be like these little flower that never worry and entrust my all to God.

    This goes back to my dearest friend, Anthony Stewart, who first introduced this song to me and who has been a real blessing in my life.

  14. Es una Alabanza maravillosa. Con un mensaje Vivificador. Deseo cantarla mas no tengo ni el demo ni la partitura. Seria maravilloso si alguien que la tuviera la compartiera, seria de una Inmensa Bendicion!. Gracias y abrazos. Jose Luis Agudelo B. desde Colombia.
