He let them still at - tend Him, And smiled to hear their song. A-men.

3 For should we fail proclaiming

Our great Redeemer's praise, The stones, our silence shaming,

Would their Hosanna's raise. But shall we only render

The tribute of our words ? No; while our hearts are tender, They too shall be the Lord's. Amen.

4 The old man, meek and mild,

O give me Samuel's heart,
The priest of Israel, slept;

A lowly heart, that waits
His watch the temple-child,

Where in Thy house Thou art,
The little Levite, kept;

Or watches at Thy gates
And what from Eli's sense was sealed, By day and night; a heart that still
The Lord to Hannah's son revealed. Moves at the breathing of Thy will.

3 O give me Samuel's ear,

The open ear, O Lord, Alive and quick to hear

Each whisper of Thy word; Like Him to answer at Thy call, And to obey Thee first of all.

5
O give me Samuel's mind,

A sweet unmurmuring faith,
Obedient and resigned

To Thee in life and death;
That I may read with childlike eyes
Truths that are hidden from the wise. Amen.

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."

3
Yet still to His footstool in prayer I may go,

And ask for a share in His love;
And if I thus earnestly seek Him below,
I shall see Him and hear Him above,

4
In that beautiful place He has gone to prepare

For all who are washed and forgiven;
And many dear children shall be with Him there,
For of such is the kingdom of heaven.

5
But thousands and thousands who wander and fall,

Never heard of that heavenly home;
I wish they could know there is room for them all,
And that Jesus has bid them to come. Amen.
