Infant voices raise to thee; In thy mercy, O receive us!

Suffer us thy lambs to be. 2 Blessed Jesus, thou hast bidden

Babes, like us, to come to thee; Though' by thy disciples cuidden,

Thou didst tell thein not to flee. 3 Saviour, condescend to feed us,

Richly let thy mercy flow; Send thy Spirit, blessed Jesus;

Light and life on us bestow.

Hark! while infant voices sing Loud hosannas to our King! 2 We are taught to love the Lord, We are taught to read his word; We are taught the way to heaven: Praise for all to God be given :

Hark! while infant voices sing

Loud hosannas to our King!
3 Parents, teachers, old and young,
All unite to swell the song:
Higher and yet bigher rise,
Till hosannas reach the skies :

Hark! while infant voices sing
Loud hosannas to our King!

HELPime to praise thy name

While I am young
Let me thy truth proclaim

With my infant tongue:
Angels from the skies
Will look down with gladsome eyes,
When thy praises rise,

By infants sung.
2 Keep us in peace and joy

Through childhood's days;
Help each little girl and boy

To walk in thy ways:
So sball we be free
From the thorns of misery;
Heaven our home shall be,

Thine all the praise. 50

May thy kingdon holy

On earth be begun! O give to us daily

Our portion of bread; It is from thy bounty

That all must be fed. 2 Forgive our transgressions,

And teach us to know That humble compassion

Which pardons each foe; Keep us from temptation,

From weakness and sin, And thine be the glory

Forever-Amon.

Thanks to God.
FATHER I from thy throne above,

upon us in love
Happy children of the free,
Grateful songs would raise to thee.

Where we're taught thy word and fear,
From that holy book of thine,
Fill’d with precious truths divine.

Through the cares and ills of life,
May the precepts thou hast given
Guide us in the path to heaven.

C. M.
The Sabbath-school.
Where'er through life I roam,

ear to me,
My heart will often turn to thee,

My childhood's Sabbath home.
2 Within thy courts of Him I've heard

Whose birth the angels sung,
When o'er the shepherds fill'd with fear,

The star of glory hung.
3 O holy place ! where first we shed

The penitential tear;
Where youthful steps are taught to tread

ln paths of peace and prayer.
4 When all our wand'rings here shall cease,

And cares of life shall end,
In God's eternal Sabbath place

Muy we our anthenas blend.
