CHILDREN COMING TO CHRIST.
As infants once to Christ were brought,
That he might bless them there; So now, we little children ought
To seek the same by pray’r.
For wben their feeble hands were spread,
And bent each infant knee, “ Forbid them not,” the Saviour said,
And so he says for me.
Though now he is not here below,
But on his heavenly hill ; To bim may little children go,
And seek a blessing still.
Well pleas'd that little flock to see,
The Saviour kindly smild;
Because I am a child.
AN INFANT'S PRAYER.
LORD ! teach a little child to pray,
Thy grace betimes impart,
Renew my infant heart.
For Christ can all my sins forgive,
And wash away their stain ;
And in his kingdom reign.
To him let little children come,
For he hath said they may ;
Their tears he'll wipe away.
For all who early seek his face
Shall surely taste his love,
To dwell with him above,
