A CHILD'S GRATITUDE FOR CHRISTIAN BIRTH




I thank the goodness and the grace
That on my birth have smile,
And made me, in these latter days,
A happy, Christian child.


I was not born, as thousands are,
Where God is never known,
And taught to say a useless prayer
To gods of wood and stone.


I was not born a little slave,
To labour in the sun,
And wish I were but in my grave,
And all my labour done.


My God, I thank thee, who hast planned
A better lot for me,
And placed me in this happy land,
Where I may hear of thee.
