For the love that crowns our days;

Grateful vows and solemn praise.

A song of triumph to thy praise;
To thee a temple shall become.

To walk as in thy glorious sight;
Still in thy precepts and thy fear,
Till life's last hour, to persevere.

1 SAVIOUR! who thy flock art feeding
With the shepherd's kindest care,
All the feeble gently leading,
While the lambs thy bosomn share
2 Now, these little ones receiving,
Fold them in thy gracious arm-
There, we know-thy word believing
Only there, secure from harm,
Let them be the Lion's prey;
Let thy tenderness, so loving,
Keep them all life's dangerous way
4 Then, within thy fuld eternal,
Let them find a resting place;
Feed in pastures ever vernal,
Drink the rivers of thy grace..
1 THE gentle Saviour calls
Our children to his breast;
Himself declares then blest.
2 “ Let them approach," he cries,
* Nor scurn their humble claim;
“ The heirs of heaven are such as these,
* For such as these I came."
3 Gladly we bring them, LORD,
Devoting them to thee,
Imploring, that, as we are thine,
Thy hand all nature hails;

With vital ardor glows,
And shines in all the fairest charm
That beauty can disclose;

Are yet by vice enslaved,
Be thy Creator's glorious name
S Ere yet the shades of sorrow cloud
The sunshine of thy days;
And cares and toils, in endless round,
Encompass all thy ways:
4 Ere yet thy heart the woes of age,
With vain regret, deplore,
5 True wisdom, early sought and gain'dy
In age will give thee rest :
O then, improve the morn of life,
THE LORD'S SUPPER.
