2 The old man, meek and mild,
The priest of Israel, slept;
The little Levite, kept;
4 Oh! give me Samuel's heart,
A lowly heart that waits,
Or watches at Thy gates
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,
To Thee in life and death,
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;
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."
1 Bless-ed Jo - sus! Bless-ed Je - sus! Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.
Grace to cleanse, and power to free:
Blessèd Jesus !
2 We are Thine; do Thou befriend us,
Be the guardian of our way;
Blessèd Jesus !
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;
Dorothy Aan Thrapp, 1038
lambs to His fold,
I should like
to have been with them then.
2 I wish that His hands had been placed on my head,
That His arm had been thrown around me,
“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;
I shall see Him and hear Him above,
For all who are washed and forgiven :
For of such is the kingdom of heaven.
6 But thousands and thousands who wander and fall,
Never heard of that heavenly home,
Jemima Luke, 1843
