God's Care For the Young


ISAAC was ransomed while he lay

Upon the altar bound;

Moses, an infant, cast away,

Pharaoh's own daughter found.

Joseph, by his false brethren sold,

God raised above them all;

To Hannah's child the Lord foretold

How Eli's house must fall.

David the bear and lion slew,

And o'er Oath's champion stood;

Josiah from his boyhood knew

His father David's God.

To good Naomi gentle Ruth

Clave with a daughter's soul;

A little maid revealed the truth

Whence Naaman was made whole.

Children are thus Jehovah's care,

Thus youth may seek his face;

If his own Son he did not spare,

Will he not give all grace?
