As Thou didst to Israel's king,
I, ere long, shall also sing.
ANOTHER OF THE SAME.
1 QUIET, Lord, my froward heart,
Make me teachable and mild,
2 What thou shalt to-day provide,
Let me as a child receive;
'Tis enough that Thou wilt care,
3 As a little child relies
On a care beyond his own;

Safe from dangers, free from fears,
When the sons of God shall prove

1 Act but the infant's gentle part;
Give up to love thy willing heart,
This task no labour will require.
Wants but to have his child resign'd;
No wreck thy vessel shall sustain.
Firm let thy fastening trust recline;
84 Ps. cxxxvI. 1.-“ O give thanks unto the Lord,
for He is good, for His mercy endureth

Join the universal song.
2 For ten thousand blessings given,
For the richest gifts bestowed,

Those sweet and holy songs!
Be heard from youthful tongues.
The rising morn to cheer;
When tires are blazing clear.
And your young voices raise
To their Redeemer's praise.
When distant far you roam,
3 Sing them, my children; many a saint
These holy strains has sung!,
From many a martyr's tongue.
Where martyr's steps have rov'd;
The songs our fathers loved!

Children's songs delight his ear.
Christ our Prophet, Priest, and King;
To the Lamb, for He was slain.
Be this day a Pentecost-
Touch their tongues with holy fite.
