FOR THE BAIRNS-1905 (Church Magazine)

FOR THE BAIRNS.
(Being a flint to Parents.)
DEAR LITTLE HEADS IN THE PEW.
In the morning of the holy Sabbath
– I like in the Church to see,
The dear little children clustered,
Worshipping there with me.
I’m sure that the gentle pastor,
Whose words are like summer dew,
Is cheered as hegazes over
The dear little heads in the pew.
Faces earnest arid thoughtful,
Innocent, grave and sweet,
They look in the congregation
Like lilies,among the wheat.
And I think that the tender Master,
Whose mercies are ever new,
Has a special benediction
For dear little heads in the pew.
When they hear”The Lord is my Shepherd,”
Or ” suffer the babes to come,”
They are glad that the loving Jesus,
Has given the lambs a home.
A place of their own with His people,
He cares for me and you,
But close in His arms He gathers,
The dear little heads in the pew.
So I love in the great assembly
On the Sabbath morn to see,
The dear little children clustered,
And worshipping there with me ;
For I know that my precious Saviour,
Whose mercies are ever new,
has a special benediction
For dear little heads in the pew.
