1897 edition. Excerpt: ...mildness to command. Do not crush their
tender feelings; Win their confidence, their trust; Treat them
kindly, and be always Merciful as well as just; Pastors, don't
forget the children; They are looking up to you; By a word of
admonition, There is much that you can do. O how many are neglected
And your sympathy they claim; Wretchedness their sole companion,
Home to them is but a name; Seek them out, and, when you find them,
Show their feet the narrow way; Feed their souls and clothe their
bodies; All you give the Lord will pay. Love the children? I can
never, Never pass them in the street But my every pulse awaking
Thrills with love to all I meet; I have heard the children singing
When my heart was lone and sad; I have heard them in the distance,
And their music made me glad. But their voices cheer and charm me
In the Sabbath homes they love; And I think they will be sweetest
In the saintly choirs above. TWILIGHT. O Twilight ever welcome
hour, That by a strange, mysterious power Brings back the past, and
bids me feel Its happy sunshine o'er me steal, Till all the buds
and blossoms fair That memory's garland used to bear Are fresh and
blooming as they seemed When first my heart of friendship dreamed.
O twilight let me dream once more, Dream all my early pleasures
o'er, And give me, just a little while, The earnest clasp, the
heart-warm smile. Of those whose dust I hallow yet, Of those too
sacred to forget. CONFIDENCE. The trust another hath reposed in
thee Is sacred as thy life, whate'er it be; And in the promise
which thy lips have given, If thou shalt fail, thou wilt be judged
of Heaven. Betray it not, nor to thy interest use What thou hast
heard, nor confidence abuse; However trivial, by a look or tone
Betray it not; 'twas for thine ear...
