HSS. my dear, lie still and slumber,
Holy angels guard thy bed ;
Heav’nly blessings without number,
Gently falling on thy head.
Sleep, my babe, thy food and raiment,
House and home thy friends Provide,
And without thy care or Payment,
All thy wants are wel] supply’d.
How much better thow’rt attended,
Than the Son of God could be,
When from heaven he descended,
And became a child like thee.
Soft and easy is thy cradle,
Coarse and hard thy Sayiour lay,
When his birth-place was a stable,
And his softest bed was hay,
Blessed habe! what glorious features,
Spotless fair, divinely bright!
Must he dwell with brutal creatures ?
How could angels bear the sight?
Was there nothing but a manger,
_ Cursed sinners could afford,
To receive the heav’nly stranger ?
Could they thus affront their Lord?
Soft, my child, I didnot chide thee,
Though my song might sound too hard,
*Tis thy mother sits heside thee,
And her arms shal] be thy guard :

The Young Child’s Pious Resolution.

HOUGH I am young, a little one,
_ As I can speak and go alone:
Then I must learn to know the Lord,
And learn to read his holy word.
*Tis time to seek to God and pray,
For what I want for every day:
I have a precious soul to save,
And [La mortal body have.
Though I am young, I yet may die,
And hasten to eternity.
There is a dreadiul fiery hell,
Where wicked ones must always dwell ;
There is a heaven full of joy,
Where godly ones must always stay !
Yo one of these my soul will fly,
As ina moment when I die.
When God that made me calls me home,
I must not stay, 1 must be gone. .
He gave me life, he gave me breath,
And he can save my sou) from death,
By Jesus Christ my only Lord,
According to his holy word.
He clothes my back, and makes me warm,
He saves my flesh and bones from harm ;
He gives me bread. and milk, and meat,
And all I have that’s good to eat.








when I am sick, he, if he please,
Can make me well, and give me ease;
He gives me sleep and quiet rest,

W hereby my body is reiresh’d 5

The Lord is good and kind to me,
And very thankful I must be.

J must obey, and love, and fear him,
By faith in Christ, I must draw near him.
J must not sin as others do;

Lest I jie down in sorrows too.

For God is angry every day,

With wicked ones who go astray :
All sinful words I must refrain,

I must not take God’s name in vain ;
I must not work, I must not play;
Upon God’s holy Sabbath day,

And if my parents speak the word,

J must obey them in the Lord,
Nor steal nor lie, nor waste my days
In idle tales or fooiish plays.

J must obey my Lord’s commands 5
Do something with my little hands =
Remember my Creator now,

In youth, while time will it allow.

He serv’d the Lord, liv’d undefikd 3

While Eli’s wicked children died.
When wicked children mocking said,
To a good man, Go uf, bald heads

God was displeas’d with them, and sent
‘Two she-bears, which them in pieces rent;
I must not, like these children vile,
Displease my God, myself defile.

Like young Abijah, I must see

That some good thing be found in me.
Young king Josiah, that blest youth,
He sought the Lord, and lov’d the truth:
He, like a king did act his part,

And follow’d God with all his heart.
The little children they did sing
Hosannas to their heavenly king.

That blessed child, young Timothy,

Did learn God’s word most heedfully.

It seem’d to be his recreation,
Which. made him wise unto salvation: ©
By faith in Christ, which he had gain’d,
With prayers and tears that faith unfeign’d,
These good examples were for me:
Like these good children I must be. .

From thence let me thy will behold,
And love thy law above fine gold;
Make my heart in thy statutes sound,
And make my faith and love abound.
Lord, circumcise my heart to love theé;
And nothing in this world above thee:
Let me behold thy blessed face,
And make my soul to grow in graces

And Saviour Christ, and of his word.

Then may my heart so fixed be, —

And never turn aside from thee.
So in my end I shall rejoice,

My soulshall say with loud glad voice,
JuHOVAH, who is like to thee?
Who takes the lambs into thine arms,
And gently leadest those with young,
Who savest children. from all harms,
Lord, I will praise thee with my Song,
And when my days on earth shall end;

Rw JOHN ROGERS, minister of the
M Gospel in London, was the first mar-
tyr in Queen Mary’s reign, and was burnt at
Smithfield, February 14th, 1554. His wife,
with nine small children, one at her breast,
followed him to the stake; with which sorrow-
fal sight he was not in the least daunted, but
with wonderful. pati ange, died courageously
for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

A few days before his Death he wrote the fa
lowing Advice to his children.
IVE ear, my children to my words,
Whom God hath dearly bought,

Lay up his laws within your heart,
And print them in your thought.

I leave you here a little book
For you to look upon,

That you may see your fathe1’s face,
When he is dead and gone.

Who for the hope of heavenly things,
While he doth here remain,

Gave over all bis golden years,
To prison and to pain:

Where I, among my iron bands,
Enciosed in the dark,

Not many days before my death,
I did compose this work:

And for example to your youth,
To whom I wish all good,

I send you here God’s perfect truth,
And seal it with my blood.

To you, my heirs of earthly things,
Which I do leave behind,

That you may read and understand,
And keep it in your mind ;

That as you have been heirs ‘of that
Which once shall wear away,



You also may possess that part
.\ hich never shall decay.

Keep always God before your eyes;
With all your whole intent,

Commit no sin in any Wise,
Keep his commandment.

Abnor the arrant whore of Rome:
And all her blaspbemies.

And drink not of her cursed cup)
Obey not her decrees.

Give honour to your inother dear,
Remember well her pain,

And recompense her in her age,

With the like love again:

Be always ready for her help,

And let her not decay;

Remember well your father all,

Who would baye been your stay-

Give of your portion to the poor,
As riches doarise;

And from the needy naked soul
Turn not away your eyes.

For he that doth not hear the cry
Of those that stand in need,

Shall cry himself, and not be heard,
When he does hope. to speed.

If God hath given you increase,
And blessed well your stores







svememoer you are putin trust,
And should relieve the poor.

Beware of foul and filthy lusts,
Let such things have no place;

Keep clean your vessels in the Lard,
That he may you embrace.

Ye are the temples of the Lord,
For youare dearly bought,

And they that do defile the same,
Shall surely come to nought.

Be never proud by any means: ©
Build not your house too high,

But always have before your eyes,
That you were born to die.

Defraud not him that hired is
Your labour to sustain,

But pay him still without delay.
His wages for his pain;

And as you would that other men
Against you should proceed,

Do you the same to them again
When they do stand in need.

Impart your portion to the poor,
In money and in meet, ~

And send the feeble fainting soul
Of that which you do eat.

Ask counsel always of the wise;
Give ear unto the end,







‘And ne’er refuse the sweet rebuke,
Of him that is thy friend.

Be always thankful to the Lord,
With prayer and with praise,

Begging of him to bless your work;
And to direct your ways.

Seek first, I says the living God,
And always him adore, f

And then be sure that he will bless
Your basket and your store.

And I beseech Almighty God,
Replenish you with grace,

‘That 1 may, meet you all in heaven;
And see you face to face.

And though the fire my body burns
Contrary to my kind,

That I cannot enjoy your love
According to my mind:

Yet, I-do hope that when the heavens
Shall vanish like a scroll,

I shall see you in perfect shape,
In body and in soul:

And that I may enjoy your lovey
And you enjoy the Jand,

I do beseech the living Lord;
‘Yo hold you in his hand. 4

Though here my body be adjudg’d
In flaming fire to fry;



“My Soul, 1 (rust, Will Straight asce
To live with God on high.
What though this carcass smart awhile,
What though this life decay,
My soul, I hope, will be with God,
And jive with him for aye.
I know [am a sinner born
From the original,
And that I do deserve to die,
By my forefathers fall.

Holy angels guard thy bed ;
Heav’nly blessings without number,
Gently falling on thy head.
Sleep, my babe, thy food and raiment,
House and home thy friends Provide,
And without thy care or Payment,
All thy wants are wel] supply’d.
How much better thow’rt attended,
Than the Son of God could be,
When from heaven he descended,
And became a child like thee.
Soft and easy is thy cradle,
Coarse and hard thy Sayiour lay,
When his birth-place was a stable,
And his softest bed was hay,
Blessed habe! what glorious features,
Spotless fair, divinely bright!
Must he dwell with brutal creatures ?
How could angels bear the sight?
Was there nothing but a manger,
_ Cursed sinners could afford,
To receive the heav’nly stranger ?
Could they thus affront their Lord?
Soft, my child, I didnot chide thee,
Though my song might sound too hard,
*Tis thy mother sits heside thee,
And her arms shal] be thy guard :

The Young Child’s Pious Resolution.

HOUGH I am young, a little one,
_ As I can speak and go alone:
Then I must learn to know the Lord,
And learn to read his holy word.
*Tis time to seek to God and pray,
For what I want for every day:
I have a precious soul to save,
And [La mortal body have.
Though I am young, I yet may die,
And hasten to eternity.
There is a dreadiul fiery hell,
Where wicked ones must always dwell ;
There is a heaven full of joy,
Where godly ones must always stay !
Yo one of these my soul will fly,
As ina moment when I die.
When God that made me calls me home,
I must not stay, 1 must be gone. .
He gave me life, he gave me breath,
And he can save my sou) from death,
By Jesus Christ my only Lord,
According to his holy word.
He clothes my back, and makes me warm,
He saves my flesh and bones from harm ;
He gives me bread. and milk, and meat,
And all I have that’s good to eat.





when I am sick, he, if he please,
Can make me well, and give me ease;
He gives me sleep and quiet rest,

W hereby my body is reiresh’d 5

The Lord is good and kind to me,
And very thankful I must be.

J must obey, and love, and fear him,
By faith in Christ, I must draw near him.
J must not sin as others do;

Lest I jie down in sorrows too.

For God is angry every day,

With wicked ones who go astray :
All sinful words I must refrain,

I must not take God’s name in vain ;
I must not work, I must not play;
Upon God’s holy Sabbath day,

And if my parents speak the word,

J must obey them in the Lord,
Nor steal nor lie, nor waste my days
In idle tales or fooiish plays.

J must obey my Lord’s commands 5

A few days before his Death he wrote the fa
lowing Advice to his children.
IVE ear, my children to my words,
Whom God hath dearly bought,

Lay up his laws within your heart,
And print them in your thought.

I leave you here a little book
For you to look upon,

That you may see your fathe1’s face,
When he is dead and gone.

Who for the hope of heavenly things,
While he doth here remain,

Gave over all bis golden years,
To prison and to pain:

Where I, among my iron bands,
Enciosed in the dark,

Not many days before my death,
I did compose this work:

And for example to your youth,
To whom I wish all good,

I send you here God’s perfect truth,
And seal it with my blood.

To you, my heirs of earthly things,
Which I do leave behind,

That you may read and understand,
And keep it in your mind ;

That as you have been heirs ‘of that
Which once shall wear away,
You also may possess that part
.\ hich never shall decay.

Keep always God before your eyes;
With all your whole intent,

Commit no sin in any Wise,
Keep his commandment.

Abnor the arrant whore of Rome:
And all her blaspbemies.

And drink not of her cursed cup)
Obey not her decrees.

Give honour to your inother dear,
Remember well her pain,

And recompense her in her age,

With the like love again:

Be always ready for her help,

And let her not decay;

Remember well your father all,

Who would baye been your stay-

Give of your portion to the poor,
As riches doarise;

And from the needy naked soul
Turn not away your eyes.

For he that doth not hear the cry
Of those that stand in need,

Shall cry himself, and not be heard,
When he does hope. to speed.

If God hath given you increase,
And blessed well your stores




svememoer you are putin trust,
And should relieve the poor.

Beware of foul and filthy lusts,
Let such things have no place;

Keep clean your vessels in the Lard,
That he may you embrace.

Ye are the temples of the Lord,
For youare dearly bought,

And they that do defile the same,
Shall surely come to nought.

Be never proud by any means: ©
Build not your house too high,

But always have before your eyes,
That you were born to die.

Defraud not him that hired is
Your labour to sustain,

But pay him still without delay.
His wages for his pain;

And as you would that other men
Against you should proceed,

Do you the same to them again
When they do stand in need.

Impart your portion to the poor,
In money and in meet, ~

And send the feeble fainting soul
Of that which you do eat.

Ask counsel always of the wise;
Give ear unto the end,




‘And ne’er refuse the sweet rebuke,
Of him that is thy friend.

Be always thankful to the Lord,
With prayer and with praise,

Begging of him to bless your work;
And to direct your ways.

Seek first, I says the living God,
And always him adore, f

And then be sure that he will bless
Your basket and your store.

And I beseech Almighty God,
Replenish you with grace,

‘That 1 may, meet you all in heaven;
And see you face to face.

And though the fire my body burns
Contrary to my kind,

That I cannot enjoy your love
According to my mind:

Yet, I-do hope that when the heavens
Shall vanish like a scroll,

I shall see you in perfect shape,
In body and in soul:

And that I may enjoy your lovey
And you enjoy the Jand,

I do beseech the living Lord;
‘Yo hold you in his hand. 4

Though here my body be adjudg’d
In flaming fire to fry;
“My Soul, 1 (rust, Will Straight asce
To live with God on high.
What though this carcass smart awhile,
What though this life decay,
My soul, I hope, will be with God,
And jive with him for aye.

From the original,
And that I do deserve to die,
By my forefathers fall.
But by our Saviour’s precious blood
Which on the cross was spilt ;
Who freely offer’d up his life,
To save our souls from cuilt.
I hope redemption I shall have,
And all who in him trust,
When I shall see him face to face,
And live among the just. in
Why should I then fear death’s grim look,
Since Christ for me did die;
For King and Cesar, rich and poor,
The force of death must try.

And faggots gird me round,
Then pray the Lord my soul in heaven
