2 Yet still to His footstool in prayer I may go,

And ask for a share in His love;
And if I now earnestly seek Him below,

I shall see Him and hear Him above,
In that beautiful place He is gone to prepare

For all who are wash'd and forgivn;
And many dear children are gath’ring there,

“ For of such is the kingdom of heaven.” 3 But thousands and thousands who wander and fall,

Never heard of that heavenly home, I should like them to know there is room for

them all, And that Jesus has bid them to come. I long for the joy of that glorious time,

The sweetest, and brightest, and best, When the dear little children of every clime

Shall crowd to his arms and be bless’d.

THE MEEKNESS OF CHRIST.
1 CHRIST is merciful and mild :

He was once a little child;
He whom heavenly hosts adore

Lived on earth among the poor.
2 Every bird can build its nest;

Foxes have their place of rest;
He, by whom the world was made,
Had not where to lay his head.

3 He who is the Lord most high,

Then was poorer far than I,
That I might hereafter be
Rich to all eternity

EARLY PIETY.
1 Ler children to their God draw near

With reverence and with holy fear;
Let every knee before Him bend,

Our Judge, our Saviour, and our Friend. 2 Lord, may Thy mercies great and free

Fill us with gratitude to Thee;
And still, as through the world we go,
More of these mercies may we know.
3 Far from our hearts, O Lord, remove

The evil thoughts that sinners love,
And give us wisdom, day by day,

To choose the straight and narrow way 4 In times of sickness, times of health,

In times of poverty or wealth,
And in our last and dying hour,

Save us by Thine Almighty power. 5 Then may we join the happy band

That in Thy heavenly temple stand;
And as Thy goodness we adore,
Sing glory, glory, evermore.

INFANT SALVATION.
1 AROUND the throne of God in heaven

Thousands of children stand ;
Children, whose sins are all forgiven,
A holy, happy band ;

Singing glory, glory, glory. 2 In flowing robes of spotless white

See every one array'd ; Dwelling in everlasting light, And joys that never fade;

Singing, &c. 3 What brought them to that world above,

That heaven so bright and fair, Where all is peace, and joy, and love ?How came those children there ?

Singing, &c.
4 Because the Saviour shed His blood

To wash away their sin;
Bath'd in that pure and precious flood,
Behold them white and clean;

Singing, &c. 5 On earth they sought their Saviour's grace,

On earth they loved His name ; So now they see His blessed face, And stand before the Lamb;

Singing, &c.

FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT. 1 COME, Holy Spirit, come !

Attend an infant's prayer ;
Stoop down, and make my heart Thy home,

And shed Thy blessings there. 2 Thy light, Thy love impart,

And let it ever be
A holy, humble, happy heart,

A dwelling-place for Thee.

JESUS THE MAN OF SORROWS. 1 JESUS, who lived above the sky,

Came down to be a man and die;
And in the Bible we may see

How very good he used to be.
2 He went about, He was so kind,

To cure poor people who were blind;
And many who were sick and lame

He pitied them, and did the same.
3 And more than that He told them too,-

The things that God would have them do;
He was so gentle and so mild,
He would have listen'd to a child.

4 But such a cruel death He died,

He was hung up and crucified ;
And those kind hands which did such good,

They naild them to a cross of wood. 5 And so He died :--and this is why

He came to be a man and die;
The Bible says He came from heaven
That we might have our sins forgiven.

A DAILY HYMN.
1 My God who makes the sun to know

His proper hour to rise,
And, to give light to all below,

Doth send him round the skies.
2 When from the chambers of the east

His morning race begins,
He never tires, nor stops to rest,

But round the world he shines. 3 So, like the sun, may I fulfil

The business of the day;
Begin my work betimes, and still

March on my heavenly way.
4 Give me, O Lord, Thy early grace,

Nor let my soul complain,
That the young morning of my days

Has all been spent in vain.
