hymn ?

Boy, that takes me back a bit ... :-)

Hear the pennies dropping,
Listen while they fall.
Ev'ry one for Jesus,
He shall have them all,
Dropping, dropping, dropping,
Hear the pennies fall;
Ev'ry one for Jesus,
He shall have them all,

Dropping, dropping ever,
From each little hand,
'Tis our gift to Jesus,
From His little band.
chorus

Now while we are little,
Pennies are our store,
But when we are older,
Lord, we'll give Thee more.
chorus

If we have not money,
We can give Him love;
He will own our offring,
Smiling from above.
chorus
