"Sweeter Than Candy" lyrics

Sweeter Than Candy

With a dirty nose
Pressed hard against the window
Of a candy store one day
A ragged little girl
Stood barefoot
While the hurried crowd
Went madly on their way

One lady stopped and smiled
She said, "I think I'll go inside
And would you like
To come along with me?"
Then behind that dirty face
She saw a smile that made her day
They just don't make
Candy that sweet

Then she bought some shoes
For her little feet
Then dressed her up
Fit for a queen
And with a smile
That came from heaven
She said, "Ma'am
I sure do thank you"
And with an angel twinkle in her eyes
She said, "Ma'am
I sure do thank you
And boy, I sure look pretty"
And then she asked
"Are you God's wife?"

Are we walking
Too fast to see
A barefoot child
On a lonely street
Are we rushing by
The ones in need
Or will some child
Say to you and me

With a smile that came from heaven
She said, "Ma'am
I sure do love you"
With an angel twinkle in her eyes
She said, "Ma'am
I sure do thank you
And boy, I sure look pretty"
And then she asked
"Are you God's wife?"

She said, "Ma'am
I sure do thank you
And boy, I sure look pretty"
And then she asked
"Are you God's wife?"
