HYMNS FOR THE NURSERY.
185
That goodness gives each simple flower
Its scent and beauty too, Aud feeds it, in night's darkest hour,
With heaven's refreshing dew.
Nor will thy mercy less delight The infant's God to be,
And when at night they cease to sing,
By thee protected still, Their young ones sleep beneath their winf
Secure from every ill.
Thus mayst thou guard with gracious arm The bed whereon I lie,

71
Who, through the darkness of the night, For safety trusts to thee.
The little birds that sing all day
In many a leafy wood, By thee are clothed with plumage gay,
By thee supplied with food.
And keep a child from every harm By thy all-watchful eye.
For night and day to thee are one;
The helpless are thy care; And, for the sake of thy dear Son,
Thou hearest my childish prayer.
