CHILD'S COMMUNION WITH CHRIST




Dear Jesus, ever at my side,
How loving must thou be,
To leave thy home in heaven to guard
A little child like me.


I can not feel thee touch my hand,
With pressure light and mild,
To check me as my mother did,
When I was but a child.


But I have felt thee in my thoughts,
Rebuking sin for me;
And, when my heart loves God, I know
The sweetness is from thee.


And when, dear Saviour, I kneel down,
Morning and night, to prayer,
Something there is within my heart
Which tells me thou art there.


Yes! when I pray, thou prayest, tooŚ
Thy prayer is all for me;
But when sleep, thou sleepest not,
But watchest patiently.


To God the Father glory be,
And to his only Son;
The same, O Holy Ghost, to thee,
While ceaseless ages run!
