4 Yes, on through life's long path,
Still chanting as ye go,
In gladness and in woe:
1 REJOICE, ye pure in heart,
TV Rejoice, give thanks, and sing!
Rejoice, give thanks and sing! 2 Bright youth and snow-crowned age,
Strong men and maidens meek, Raise high your free, exulting song,
God's wondrous praises speak: 3 With all the angel choirs,
With all the saints on earth,
True rapture, noblest mirth:
5 At last the march shall end,
The wearied ones shall rest,
Jerusalem the blest:
6 Then on, ye pure in heart,
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing;
Edward H. Plumptre, 1865
HUSHED was the evening hymn, 3 () 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, Rang through the silence of the shrine. And to obey Thee first of all. 2 The old man, meek and mild,
4 () give me Samuel's heart,
A lowly heart, that waits
Where in Thy house Thou art,
Or watches at Thy gates; And what from Eli's sense was sealed By day and night, a heart that still The Lord to Hannah's son revealed. Moves at the breathing of Thy will.
5 () give me Samuel's mind,
A sweet unmurmuring faith,
To Thee in life and death,
James D. Burns, 1857
THINK when I read that sweet story of old,
When Jesus was here among men,
I should like to have been with them then.
That His arm had been thrown around me,
"Let the little ones come unto Me.''
And ask for a share in 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.
Never heard of that heavenly home;
And that Jesus has bid them to come.
The sweetest and brightest and best,
Jemima Luke, 1841
We have no wealth or learn - ing: What shall we chil - dren bring?
A - men,
1 THE wise may bring their learning,
The rich may bring their wealth, And some may bring their greatness,
And some bring strength and health; We, too, would bring our treasures
To offer to the King;
What shall we children bring?
And these shall be the treasures
We offer to the King,
The poorest child may bring.
2 We'll bring Him hearts that love Him;
We'll bring Him thankful praise, And young souls meekly striving
To walk in holy ways:
3 We'll bring the little duties
We'll have to do each day; We'll try our best to please Him,
At home, at school, at play:
To offer to our King
