Representative Text

1 Little children, love the Saviour;
Turn your wayward hearts to him;
He will guide you, he will lead you
Thro' life's pathway, dark and dim;
Lean on him when you are weary,
He'll support you with fond care,
He'll protect, and love, and bless you,
For like you his angels are.

2 Far away from mortal vision
Lies a land celestial bright;
Where a band of white-robed seraphs
Chase away the shades of night;
Where ne'er comes a thought of evil
To disturb the holy calm;
For God shields his precious children
From all fear of troubling harm.

3 Jesus died for you, dear children,--
Died that you might happy be;
That you might from sin and anguish
Be at last forever free.
Can you, will you slight his goodness,
Walk in sinful pleasure's ways,
And forget your daily duties,
Off'ring him your prayers and praise!

4 O, there's joy in rightly doing,
Never found in vice and sin;
Then obey the risen Saviour,
If a home in heaven you'd win.
Read the Bible; it will point you
To bright scenes of bliss on high,
Where there's a rest for all the weary,
And our loved ones never die.
