2 The old man, meek and mild,

The priest of Israel, slept;
His watch the temple-child,

The little Levite, kept;
And what from Eli's sense was sealed,
The Lord to Hannah's son revealed.

4 Oh! give me Samuel's heart,

A lowly heart that waits,
Where in Thy house Thou art,

Or watches at Thy gates
By day and night, a heart that still
Moves at the breathing of Thy will.

3 Oh! 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 Oh! 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.

2 In flowing robes of spotless white

See every one arrayed ; Dwelling in everlasting light And joys that never fade,

Singing, "Glory be to God on high." 3 What brought them to that world above,

That heaven so bright and fair, Where all is peace, and joy, and love ; How came those children there,

Singing, "Glory be to God on high ?" 4 Because the Saviour shed His blood

To wash away their sin;
Bathed in that pure and precious flood,
Behold them white and clean,

Singing, “Glory be to God on high." 5 On earth they sought the Saviour's grace,

On earth they loved His name; So now they see His blessèd face, And stand before the Lamb,

Singing, “Glory be to God on high."

Grace to cleanse, and power to free:

Blessèd Jesus !
Early let us turn to Thee.

2 We are Thine; do Thou befriend us,

Be the guardian of our way;
Keep Thy flock, from sin defend us;
Seek us when we go astray:

Blessèd Jesus !
Hear the children, when they pray.
3 Thou hast promised to receive us,

Poor and sinful though we be ; Thou hast mercy to relieve us,

4 Early let us seek Thy favor;

Early let us do Thy will;
Blessed Lord and only Saviour,
With Thy love our bosoms fill:

Blessed Jesus!
Thou hast loved us, love us still.

lambs to His fold,

I should like

to have been with them then.

A men.

2 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 of 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.

6 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.

Jemima Luke, 1843
