Smile a while and give your face a rest
Laugh a while and ease your little chest
Reach your hands up to the sky
While you watch them with your eye.

Information About Smile a While

This is another one of those songs that regardless of being rather popular and known by many people in different parts of the world, it is difficult to determine exactly where it originated from. However, it appears that this was initially a Christian hymn that is still sung in churches today as a welcoming song when people are walking in.

This is a short and sweet song that is ideal for kids of all ages to sing-along with. Plus, it also contains a positive message and pleasant melody that certainly provokes people to smile whenever they sing it.

Furthermore, as is the case with many children's songs, there are other slightly varied versions of this tune that can be found online and in songbooks, yet every one of them entails smiling from ear to ear. In fact, there are also longer versions as well that actually contain an extra verse or two, like in this inspiring example on YouTube.

This song has been printed from the website.
