K^ inkk wen I read tst swcdtstoryof old.

HtowHe called little c Ri ldren as lambs
to His fold,
I s fould like to fave been wjtf i[im ten.
Iwisfi that His hands had been placed
on my Read,
That His arms R.d been thrown around me
And tfat I migft have seen His kind look
wfen He said
Let Lte little ones come unto Me'

YET still to His footstool in prayer 1


may Qo,
And ask


for a share in


His love;


And if I thus earnestly seek Him below,


I shdl seeHim
In that beautiful
to prepare
For all who are
And many dear

For of such is the


ir hear Him above.
place He has gone

wash'd and forgiven;
children are oather-

kingdom of heaven".





( '3)


BUT thousands b thousands who wander fall,
Never heard of that heavnly home;
The scriptures inform us there's room for
them all,
And that JESUS has bid them to come.
It speaks of that blessed glorious ti me,
The fairest and brightest and best,
When dear little children of every
clime
Shall crowd to His arms and be blest.

SE AREbut little children weak,
SNor born in any high estate;
, What can we do for JESU' sake
Who is so hioh & ood oY great?


WE know that Holy Innocents
Laid down forHim their infant life,
And martyrs brave s patient saints
Have stood for Him infire tr strife.

We wear the cross theywore of old,
Our lips have learned like vows to make;
We need not die;we cannot fight;
What may we do for JESU'S sake ?

0 day byday each Christian child
Has much to do,without,within;
Adeathto die for JESUS sake,
Aweary war to wage with si n.






When deep within our swelling hearts
The thoughts of pride banner rise,
When bitter words are on our tongues
And tears of passion in our eyes;




( 16 )


Thenwe may stay the angry blow
Then we may check the haslyword,
Give gentle answers back a0ain
And fight a battle for our Lord.

Vith smiles of peace b looks of love
Light in our dwellinQs wemay make,
Bid kind good humour brighten there,
And do all still for JESU'S sake.



iThere's not a child so smalleweak
But has his ittle cross to take,
His little work of love tr praise
Thdt he may do for JESU'Ssake.

It ws a pretty sight;

When lo! & storm be an to ri5e,
The wind blew loud 5 strong;
It blew the clouds acrossthe slies,
It blew the wsves along.




And all but One wassoreafraid,
Of sinKin in the deep;

And He wdLS fst asleep.

7Fere's rest for little children
Above the bright blue sky,
Who love the Blessed Saviour,
And to the FATHER cry;
A rest from every turmoil,
From sin and sorrow free,
Where every little pilgrim
Shall rest eternally.
.' ere's a home for little
children
Above the bright blue
where JESUS reins in
g. ory,
A home ofpeacet and
joy;
No home on earth is like it,
Nor can with it compare;
For every one is happy,
Nor can be happier, there.
Where's a crown for little children
Above the bright blue sky,
And all who looR for JESUS
Shall wear it by and by;
A crown of brightest glory,
Which He will'then bestow
On those who found His favour
And loved His Name below.

ONCE IN ROYAL DAVIDS CITY.

-q_






VnC in royal David's city
'Stood lowly cattle shed
SWhere aM 'other laid her Baby
In a manner for His bed;
MAry wsc that Pother mild.
JESUS'ChRIlT her little Child.

-( 24 )


lHe came down to earth from heaven
Who is QOD and LorD of all,
And His shelter was a stable,
And His cradle wasa tall;
With the poor and meek and lowly
Lived on earth our Saviour Holy.

And through all His wondrous Childhood,
He wouldL onour and obey,
Love and watch the lowly Maiden,
In whose gentle arms He lay;
Christian children all mudL be
Mild, obedient, good as He.

For He is our childhoods pattern,
Day by day like us He grew,
He was litle,weak, & hel less,
Tears and smiles like us He knew.
And Hee feeleth for our sadness,
And He shareth in our gladness.






( 25)


A nd our eyes at last sheal seeH im,
Through His own redeeming love,
For thatchild so dear & ceritle
Is our LORD in heaven above;
And He leads His children on
To the place where He is gone.

N\ot in that poor lowly table,
With the oxen standing by,
We shall see Him; but inrceaven,
Set At GOD'S riQht hand on high;
When like stars His children crowned
All in white shall wait around.
