He'll make my heart grow like His own,
All loving, good, and mild;
And take me for His child.
Then happily I'll lie and sleep
Within my little nest;
His children while they rest.
“ OUR FATHER, WHO ART IN HEAVEN."
GREAT GOD, and wilt Thou condescend
Art Thou my Father ? . Canst Thou bear
Father ? Let me be
Art Thou my Father I'll depend,
Art thou my Father? Then at last,
'T was when the sea, with awful roar
A little bark assailed,
O’er each on board prevailed,
Save one, the captain's darling child,
Who steadfast viewed the storm; And cheerful, with composure smiled
At danger's threatening form.
“Why sporting thus ? ” a seaman cried,
" Whilst terrors overwhelm ? "
HAPPY, happy Sunday,
Thou day of peace and heaven, 'Tis fit we should give one day
To God, who gives us seven. Though other days bring sadness,
Thou bid'st us cease to mourn; Then hail, thou day of gladness !
I welcome thy return.
Happy, happy Sunday,
We will not toil to-day ; But leave to busy Monday
Our work, and toys, and play. Thy face is ever smiling,
Thou fairest of the seven ! They only speak of toiling,
But thou of rest and heaven.
Happy, happy Sunday,
Thy holy hours I prize; Thou art, indeed, heaven's own day,
The emblem of the skies. May I, O LORD! inherit
That rest when life is o'er; And with each perfect spirit
Adore Thee evermore.
By cool Siloam's shady rill,
How sweet the lily grows !
Of Sharon's dewy rose !
Lo! such the child whose early feet
The paths of peace have trod;
Is upward drawn to God!
By cool Siloam's shady rill
The lily must decay;
Must shortly fade away.
And soon, too soon, the wintry hour
Of man's maturer age,
And stormy passions rage!
O Thou who giv'st us life and breath,
We seek Thy grace alone,
To keep us still Thine own!
GENTLE JESUS, meek and mild,
Fain I would to Thee be brought;
Oh ! supply my every want;
AGAIN we've seen the Sabbath-day
And heard of Jesus and of heaven; We thank Thee, Father, and we pray
That this day's sins may be forgiven. May all we heard and understood,
Be well remembered through the week, And help to make us wise and good,
More humble, diligent, and meek.
