Children's Song Lyrics and Sound Clip

Water them, care for them,
watch them grow,

In my heart each day.

In my heart, seeds of joy,
growing every day.

Seeds of peace...

Seeds of love...


I - With your right hand, point to yourself.

plant - With all the fingers of your right hand held tightly together, place them into your left palm, like you are placing something tiny into the earth.

seeds - With your right hand, make seed scattering motions in a wide arc.

joy - Palms up, flutter/brush both hands in a quick, upward motion, in front of your chest several times, indicating a good, "up" feeling.

in my heart - With the index finger of both hands, trace the shape of a heart on your chest.

each day - Place the tip of the elbow of your bent right arm, with your hand held straight up, on the down-turned left hand. Move the right hand downward towards the left elbow, keeping the right elbow in place (like the sun moving across the horizon).

water them - With your right hand, pretend you are holding a watering can and you're pouring water over a row of seeds.

care for them - With both arms make the motion for a hug.

watch them grow - Hold your left hand like you're holding a cup. Push your right hand up from below, through the left hand, opening the fingers like a plant growing.

peace - Clasp your hands in front of you (like you're shanking hands with yourself) then move both hands down and out in a smooth motion. (This shows a quieting effect on everything.)

love - Cross your arms in front of you, hugging yourself.
