Yes! there are little ones in heaven ..
NURSERY AND SCHOOL HYMNS.
A CHILD'S PRAYER.
1 GENTLE Jesus, meek and mild,
Look upon a little child,
2 Fain I would to Thee be brought,
3 O supply my every want,
Feed the young and tender plant ;
PRAYER FOR GRACE. 1 LORD, look upon a little child,
By nature sinful, rude, and wild :
And make me all I ought to be.
Wash'd in my Saviour's precious blood, And my whole heart, from sin set free,

And ever since have stray'd;
Without Thy mercy's aid.
And wash away their stain ;
And in His kingdom reign.
For He has said they may;
Their tears He'll wipe away. 5 For all who early seek His face
Shall surely taste His love;
To dwell with Him above.

Though no one else can see; And all our thoughts to Him are known,
Wherever we may be.
3 'Tis not enough to bend the knee,
And words of prayer to say:
Or else we do not pray.
4 Teach us, O Lord, to pray aright,
Thy grace to us impart,
And serve Thee with the heart.
5 Then, Heavenly Father! at Thy throne
Thy praise we will proclaim :
In our Redeemer's name.
THE CHILD'S GOSPEL.
1 I THINK when I read that sweet story of old,
When Jesus was here among men, How He call'd little children, as lambs to His fold,
I should like to have been with them then. I wish that His hands had been placed on my head,
That His arm had been thrown around me, And that I might have seen His kind look when
