"LITTLE SAMUEL"

Chorus
“Listen, little Samuel, I’m a callin’, can you tell? Can you tell?
In your sleep I speak to you. Samuel, I’m a callin’ you.”

Verse 1
In the quiet of the night, Samuel went to Eli.
“Here am I, what do you want?” Eli said, “I called you not.”

Chorus 2
Samuel went back to bed, but soon again the same voice said,
“Listen, little Samuel, I’m a callin’ you, can you tell?”

Verse 2
In the middle of the night, Samuel went to Eli.
“Here am I, what do you want?” Eli said, “I called you not.”

Chorus 3
Samuel went back to bed, but woke again when the same voice said,
“Listen, little Samuel, I’m a callin’ you, can you tell?”

Verse 3
For a third time in the night, Samuel went to Eli.
“Here am I, what do you want?” Eli said, “I called you not.”

Chorus 4
Back to bed now, quietly, and if the Lord is calling thee,
Say to Him, ‘Lord, speak to me, for Thy servant heareth Thee.’”

Verse 4
Little Samuel went to bed, and laid down on his pillow.
In the nighttime, still and sweet,
Samuel went back to sleep. [Ssssh!]
