OUR CHILDREN'S SACRED SONGS.
AN EVENING PRAYER.
Lord, this night I come to own All my sins before thy throne.
All the ill I've done this day, In thy blood, oh, wash away!
Put on me, O Lord, this night, Put on me a robe of white.
Say to me, with voice from heaven, " Little child, thy sin's forgiven."
Joyful then my rest I'll take, Jesus, all for thy dear sake!
Now all the flowers have gone to repose, Closed are the sweet cups of lily and rose; Blossoms rocked lightly on evening's mild breeze, Drowsily, dreamily swinging the trees.
Sweetly sleep ! Jesus doth keep ;
And Jesus will give his beloved ones sleep.
Sleep, till the flowers shall open once more; Sleep, till the lark in the morning shall soar; Sleep, till the morning sun, lighting the skies, Bids thee from sweet repose joyfully rise.
Sweetly sleep! Jesus doth keep;
And Jesus will give his beloved ones sleep.
JESUS, TENDER SHEPHERD, HEAR ME. M. L. Duncan.
Jesus, tender Shepherd, hear me!
Bless thy little lamb to-night! Through the darkness be thou near me;
Watch my sleep till morning light!
All this day thy hand has led me, And I thank thee for thy care;
Thou hast clothed me, warmed, and fed me Listen to my evening prayer.
Let my sins be all forgiven!
Bless the friends I love so well! Take me, when I die, to heaven,
Happy there with thee to dwell!
THE MORNING BRIGHT.
The morning bright,
With rosy light, Hath waked me from my sleep;
Father, I own
Thy love alone Thy little one doth keep!
All through the day,
I humbly pray, Be thou my guard and guide;
My sins forgive,
And let me live, Blest Jesus, near thy side!
Oh, make thy rest
Within my breast, Great Spirit of all grace!
Make me like thee,
Then shall I be Prepared to see thy face!
A CHILD'S PRAYER.
Samuel Henry Dickson.
The glorious God, who reigns on high, Who formed the earth, and built the sky, Stoops from his throne in heaven to hear A little infant's prattling prayer.
Father of all! my Father too! Oh, make me good, and just, and true! Make me delight to learn thy word, And love to pray and praise the Lord!
Oh, may thy gracious presence bless And guard my childhood's helplessness; Be with me as I grow in years, And guide me through this vale of tears!
EVENING IS FALLING ASLEEP IN THE WTEST.
From the German.
Evening is falling asleep in the west, Lulling the golden-brown meadows to rest; Twinkle like diamonds the stars in the skies, Greeting the two little slumbering eyes.
Sweetly sleep! Jesus doth keep ;
And Jesus will give his beloved ones sleep.
