Verses For A Child.

IN the morning when you rise,

Thank the Lord of earth and skies,

For his kind, parental care

Him from whom all blessings are.

As the hours glide swiftly by,

Improve each one industriously;

Asking strength and grace of Him

Who can keep your feet from sin.

Let no act of wickedness

Spot your life or spoil your peace;

Thus when time and work is done,

You through Christ shall overcome.

When the shades of night appear,

To your closet then repair;

Hold communion with your God,

Who upholds you by his Word.

M. D. A.
