TO THE SUNDAY SCHOOL CHILDREN



Who sent me the picture depictive of Isaiah xi.

Jesus loves you! so does mother:
   Glad thy Eastertide:
Loving God and one another,
   You in Him abide.
Ours through Him who gave you to us, - 
   Gentle as the dove,
Fondling e'en the lion furious,
   Leading kine with love.

Father, in Thy great heart hold them
   Ever thus as Thine!
Shield and guide and guard them; and, when
   At some siren shrine
They would lay their pure hearts' off'ring,
   Light with wisdom's ray - 
Beacon beams - athwart the weakly,
   Rough or treacherous way.

Temper every trembling footfall,
   Till they gain at last - 
Safe in Science, bright with glory - 
   Just the way Thou hast:

PO 44



Then, O tender Love and wisdom,
   Crown the lives thus blest
With the guerdon of Thy bosom,
   Whereon they may rest!

Pleasant View, Concord, N. H., April 3, 1899.


PO 45
