Song for Sunday: A Person's A Person No Matter How Small

I went to see a very fun production of  Seussical the Musical the other night and was quite taken by the song Horton sings after he hears the Whos on a dust speck. 

Then, I visited a church this morning. A husband and wife, both CYC alums, were dedicating their baby to God. I have a soft spot for babies and this beautiful tiny one put me in mind of the song again.  

So I am sharing it as this week's Song for Sunday.

The song is taken from this excerpt from the book Horton Hears a Who, here read by a mom:

A Person's a Person No Matter How Small

I say! How confusing!
I've never heard tell
Of a small speck of dust that is able to yell,
So you know what I think?
Why I think that there must be someone on top of that small speck of dust.
Some poor little person
Who's shaking with fear
That he'll blow in the pool!
He has no way to steer!
He's alone in the universe!
I'll just have to save him
Because after all,
A person's a person, no matter how small.
A person's a person no matter how- 

As performed by a high school drama club:

Do you like Dr. Seuss?
What song from a musical do you enjoy?
