THE LOVING JESUS.THE Saviour loves all children,For He was once a child,A joyous happy infant,And gentle, meek, and mild!He loves the young in heaven,He loves the young on earth,For every child that livethReminds Him of His birth.Oh! happy were those children--We wish we had been there,-Who gained the Saviour's blessing,And heard His loving prayer.We wish His hands had restedUpon our heads as well,And we had heard the lessonsWhich from the Master fell.He speaks when we are reading,Although no voice is heaid;And whispers many blessingsTo children in His word.And if we seek Him earlyHe'll lead us by the hand,Until some day in glory,We at His side shall stand.I I 11INT O
