OUR CHILDREN'S SACRED SONGS.
PART I.
HYMNS FOR THE NURSERY.
CRADLE HYMN.
Isaac Watts.
Hush, my babe, lie still and slumber, Holy angels guard thy bed;
Heavenly blessings, without number, Gently falling on thy head.
How much better thou art attended Than the Son of God could be,
When from heaven he descended, And became a child like thee!
Soft and easy is thy cradle;
Coarse and hard thy Saviour lay, When his birthplace was a stable,
And his softest bed was hay.
I could give thee thousand kisses, Hoping what I most desire ;
Not a mother's fondest wishes Can to greater joys aspire.
Mayst thou live to know and fear him, Trust and love him all thy days;
Then go dwell forever near him, See his face, and sing his praise!
A MORNING PRAYER.
Jesus, Lord, to thee I pray:
Guide and guard me through this day;
As the shepherd tends the sheep, Lord, me safe from evil keep.
Keep my feet from every snare, Keep me with thy watchful care.
All my little wants supply, If I live, or if I die.
And when life, O Lord, is past, Take me to thyself at last!
