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!

Higher and yet bigher rise,
Till hosannas reach the skies :

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

Infant praise and prayer.
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

Keep me safe till morning light.

Happy there, with thee to dwell.

Thanks to God.
FATHER I from thy throne above,

upon us in love
Happy children of the free,
Grateful songs would raise to thee.
2 Thanks for Sunday-schools so dear,
Where we're taught thy word and fear,
From that holy book of thine,
Fill’d with precious truths divine.
8 Saviour! 'mid all earthly strife,
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.
