SONGS FOE CHILDHOOD.
May glide- o'er as gently as zephyrs that blow Where moonbeams and soft wavelets meet.
" What is the snow for ?" O child of my love!
The dear Father knoweth our needs, And blossom and snow-flake alike he sends down
As our wondering questions he heeds.
A SHORT SERMON.
Alice Caey.
Children who read my lay, This much I have to say: Each day, and every day,
Do what is right� Right things in great and small; Then, though the sky should fall, Sun, moon, and stars, and all,
You shall have light.
This further would I say: Be you tempted as you may, Each day, and every day,
Speak what is true� True things in great and small; Then, though the sky should fall, Sun, moon, and stars, and all,
Heaven would show through.
Figs, as you see and know, Do not out of thistles grow; And, though the blossoms blow,
While on the tree, Grapes never, never yet Ou the limbs of thorns were set: So, if you good would get,
Good you must be.
Life's journey through and through, Speaking what is just and true, Doing what is right to do
Unto one and all, When you work, and when you play, Each day, and every day; Then peace shall gild your way,
Though the sky should fall.
WHAT CAN LITTLE HANDS DO?
Oh, what can little hands do To please the King of heaven ?
The little hands some work may try
To help the poor in misery : Such grace to mine be given!
Oh, what can little lips do
To please the King of heaven ?
The little lips can praise and pray,
And gentle words of kindness say :
Such grace to mine be given!
Oh, what can little eyes do
To please the King of heaven ? The little eyes can upward look, Can learn to read God's Holy Book: Such grace to mine be given!
Oh, what can little hearts do
To please the King of heaven ? The hearts, if God his Spirit send, Can love and trust the children's Friend Such grace to mine be given!
Though small is all that we cau do
To please the King of heaven, WThen hearts and hands and lips unite To serve the Saviour with delight, They are most precious in his sight: Such grace to mine be given!
