5th P. M. 4 lines Ts. Children may pray to God.
God my Maker cares for me;
Assist a child's infirmity;
While my heart wanders far from thee. 2 Ah! never let me speak & word
But what with all my soul I mean; Or lie to thee, thou glorious Lord,
By whom my every thought is seen. 3 But with submissive lowliners
Should I approach thy glorious throne, How can I hope by words to please,
To please a God" I have not known! 4 I know not what to do or say,
Till thy bless'd Spirit I receive, And Jesus teaches me to pray,
And Jesus teaches me to live.
P. M. 87, 87.
Friend of children, hear our lays;
Sing thy name in hymns of praise.
Are we, God of boundless love!
Strangers to the light above.
We would tread this earthly vale;
Be our strength, when strength shall fail. 4 Let us mount the hills of glory,
Far from sins, and woes, and pains;
And in everlasting strains.

The guide of early youth:
O'er every dreary road;
And calls us home to God.
For pleasure or for pain;
For all that we might gain :
By guile or cruel might;
And God defend the right!
But spread it far and wide,
Beyond the rolling tide :
And, with one voice and heart,
We'll never, never part! 35

THAT I, like Timothy,
Till for God mature I grow !
Full of truth, and full of grace,
Teach me in my youthful days Wonders in thy word to see, Wise through faith which is in thee. 3 Open thou mine eyes of faith;
Open now the book of God; Show me here the sacred path,
Leading to thy blest abode; Wisdom from above impart, Speak the meaning to my heart.
