I’ll Help You
Wendy Baldinger
I’ll help you clean your room
I’ll help you with a mop and broom
I’ll help you tie your shoe
It’s a mitzvah to help, and I’ll help you.
I’ll help you sweep the floor
I’ll help you get things at the store
I’ll help you with what you need to do
It’s a mitzvah to help, and I’ll help you.
Thinking of things we like to do.
Running and playing, singing, too.
It’s always fun to lend a hand.
What a great way to be a friend.
I’ll help you wash the clothes
I’ll help you shovel when it snows
I’ll help you see it through
It’s a mitzvah to help, and I’ll help you.
I’ll help you when the work gets tough
I’ll help you when you’ve done enough
I’ll help you see it through
It’s a mitzvah to help, and I’ll help you.
Thinking of how we spend our day
Let’s be kind in what we say
It’s always fun to lend a hand.
Let’s help out our family and friends.
I’ll help you when you’re feeling cold
I’ll help you, here’s a hand to hold
I’ll help you when you’re feelin’ blue
It’s a mitzvah to help, and I’ll help you.
It’s a mitzvah to help, and I’ll help you.
