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.

B

Well pleas'd that little flock to see,

The Saviour kindly smild;
Oh! then he will not frown on me,

Because I am a child.

AN INFANT'S PRAYER.

LORD ! teach a little child to pray,

Thy grace betimes impart,
And grant thy holy spirit may

Renew my infant heart.

For Christ can all my sins forgive,

And wash away their stain ;
And fit my soul with him to live,

And in his kingdom reign.

To him let little children come,

For he hath said they may ;
His bosom then shall be their home,

Their tears he'll wipe away.

For all who early seek his face

Shall surely taste his love,
Jesus shall guide them by his grace

To dwell with him above,
