God of mercy and of love,
W. W. II.
A GOOD NIGHT SONG.
To bed, to bed, my curly head,
To bed, and sleep so sweetly; Merry and bright, with the morning light,
Be up, and dress'd so neatly. Then for a walk, and a pleasant talk
About the birds and flowers ; And all the day, in work and play,
We'll pass the bappy hours. And then to bed, to rest the head,
And sleep until the morrow : May every day thus glide away,
Without a shade of sorrow.
WHEN Jesus left His Father's throne,
He chose an humble birth;
He came to dwell on earth.
Like Him, may we be found below
In wisdom's paths of peace; Like Him, in grace and knowledge grow, As
years and strength increase.
THE GOLDEN BULE.
Jesus pass’d by the rich and great
For men of low degree;
like them was He.
Sweet were His words, and kind His look,
When mothers round Him press’d; Their infants in His arms He took,
And on His bosom bless’d.
Safe from the world's alluring harms,
Beneath His watchful eye, Thus in the circle of His arms May we for ever lie. Amen.
THE GOLDEN RULE.
To do to others as I would
That they should do to me,
As children ought to be.
Or walking out abroad,
Of Jesus Christ our Lord.
THE ORPHAN'S SONG..
I saw a little lamb to-day,
It was not very old:
So soft within the fold:
what could you do,
But soon, alas ! she died.
Her lonely heart to cheer;
She found a Saviour near : He bade her seek His smiling face, And find in heaven a dwelling-place.
