"Tis Nature's gayest hour!
While pearls of dew adorn the grass,
And fragrance fills the flowers-

And we will bound abroad,
And fill our hearts with melody,
And raise our songs to God.

SWEET STORY. 11s & 9s.

1. I think when I read that sweet story of old, When Jesus was here among men, How He

called little children as lambs to His fold, I should like to have been with them then.

1362. P. M.

2. I wish that His hands had been placed on
my head,

That His arm had been thrown around
me,

And that I might have seen His kind look
when He said,

"Let the little ones come unto me."

CHILD'S PRAYER. 63 & 5s.

3. Yet still to His footstool in prayer I may
And ask for a share in His love; [go,
And if I thus earnestly seek Him below,
I shall see Him and hear Him above;
In that beautiful place he is gone to prepare
For all who are washed and forgiven;
And many dear children are gathering
there,

"For of such is the kingdom of heaven."

1. Our Father in heaven, We hallow Thy name! May Thy kingdom holy On earth be the same !

2. Forgive our transgressions,
And teach us to know
That humble compassion
That pardons each foe;

L. MASON.

O give to us daily Our portion of bread, It is from Thy bounty That all must be fed.

Keep us from temptation,
From weakness and sin,
And Thine be the glory
For ever-Amen!

Always sees what children do, And is writing now the story

Of our thoughts and actions, too.

4. Let our sins be all forgiven;

Make us fear whate'er is wrong; Lead us on our way to heaven, There to sing a nobler song.

1366. Ss & 7s.

1. WHAT a strange and wondrous story,
From the Book of God is read-
How the Lord of life and glory
Had not where to lay His head.

2. How He left His throne in heaven, Here to suffer, bleed, and die, That my soul might be forgiven, And ascend to God on high.

D. C.

3. Father! let Thy Holy Spirit

Still reveal a Saviour's love,
And prepare me to inherit

Glory where He reigns above;

4. There, with saints and angels dwelling, May I that great love proclaim, And with them be ever telling,

All the wonders of His name.
