.3

i MUST pray
Bbth night and day.


Before I eat,
I must entreat





4
That God would bless
To me my meat.
I must not play
On God's own day,
But I must hear
fis word in-fear.
It is a sin
To steal a pin,
Much more to steal
A greater thing.
Pll beg my bread
From door to door,
Rather than steal
SMy neighbor's store.
I must work,
And I must pray,





5








That God will feed
Me, day by day.
All honest labor
God will bless;
Let me not live
In idleness.
I must not kill
A little fly;




6
It is an act
Of cruelty.
I must not lie,
I must not feign,
I must not take
God's name in vain.
I must not be
Or rude or wild;
I must not be
A naughty child.
I must not speak
Of others ill,
But ever hear.
To all good will.
I'd better die
Than tell a lie,





7
Lest I be lost
Eternally:
Nor may my tongue
Say What is wrong;
I must not sin,
A'world to win,


--A

In the Bible
I am to read,
And trust in God
In all my need :
For Christ alone
My soul can save,






And raise rmy body
From the grave.
0! blessed Saviour,
Take my heart,
And let not me
From thee depart.
Lord, grant that I
In faith may die,
And live with thee
Above the sky.
