"THE LOST KITE"

Once there was a boy named Jim
Who went to fly his kite,
And all day long it flew for him,
And be came his heart's delight.
But as he tried to bring it back,
It sailed off through the air.
He cried to see it fly away,
Then he stopped and prayed this prayer:

Chorus 1
"Lord, that kite made me happy,
But it sailed off in the blue.
Have it fly to a sad someone,
And make them happy, too."

Then one day Jim went to play,
Running through the fields,
And saw a boy he'd never seen who
Had much less than he.
Suddenly Jim noticed that the
Boy was playing there with his lost kite,
And the happy sight was the answer to Jim's prayer.

Chorus 2
"Lord, that kite made me happy,
Then it sailed off through the blue.
You had it fly to a sad someone,
And it's made them happy, too."

Chorus 3
So if something made you happy,
But it's lost, don't you be blue.
Pray it's found by a sad someone,
And it makes them happy, too.

Chorus 4
Lord, that kite made me happy,
Then it sailed off in the blue.
You had it fly to a sad someone,
And it's made them happy, too.
