2 Little deeds of kindness, sweet words of love,

Helping on each other to Heaven above,
Smiling on the weary, aiding the weak,-

All these are little missions our hearts may seek.
3 We can love each other with youthful zest,

We can love the Saviour, dearest and best;
Oh, the work is plenty children may do;

Then let us all be earnest, faithful, and true.
All the Way.

Fresh Laureis, 1 I'm but a youthful pilgrim,

He'll comfort me in trouble,
My journey 's just begun;

He'll wipe my tears away;
They say I'll meet with sorrow With joy I'll follow Jesus
Before my journey's done.

All the way.

(Co.) The world is full of trouble, And trials too, they say;

3 Then trials cannot vex me, But I will follow Jesus

And pain I need not fear;
All the way. (Rep. last two lines.)

For when I'm close by Jesus

Grief cannot come too near; 2 Then like a little pilgrim,

Not even death can harm me! Whatever I may meet,

When death I meet one day, I'll take it-joy or sorrow

To heaven I'll follow Jesus
And lay at Jesus' feet:

All the way

(Cho.) 159 The Golden Rule.

s Songs for Little

Folks, p. 62. 1 Never lose the golden rule,

Freely, freely,
Keep it still in view :

From the bounty of your store, Do for others as you would

Cheerful givers,
They should do to you.

Help the humble poor. (Cho.)
Kindly, gently,

3 Love the Lord, the first command, In their burden bear a part;

With thy soul and mind;
Meekly chiding

Love thy neighbor as thyself,
With a loving heart.

Both in one combined.
Cho.- Repeat first four lines.

Justly, justly, 2 Help the feeble ones along,

With each other strive to live; Cheer the faint and weak,

Ever ready,
To the sorrow-laden heart

Willing to forgive.
Words of comfort speak.


Little Child's Belief.

Songs for Little

Folks, p. 52. 1 I believe in God the Father,

He taught us to be holy, Who made us every one,

Till on the cross He died; Who made the earth and heaven, And now we call Him “Saviour,"

The moon and stars and sun; And “ Christ the crucified." All that we have each day

3 I believe God's Holy Spirit By Him, by Him is given;

Is with us every day, We call Him when we pray,

And, if we do not grieve It, "Our Father in the heaven."

It will ne'er go away: 2 I believe in Jesus Christ,

From heaven, upon Jesus, The Father's “only Son,”

It descended like a dove; Who came to us from heaven, And It dwelleth ever with us And loved us every one:

To fill our hearts with love.

161 Little Children, Come. | Songs for Little

Folks, p. 67. 1

2 Little children, come to Jesus; Little eyes to read the Bible,

Hear Him saying, “Come to Me!” Given from the heaven above; Blessed Jesus, who to save us

Little ears to hear the story Shed His blood on Calvary!

Of the Saviour's wondrous love; Little souls were made to serve Him, Little tongues to sing His praises, All His holy law fulfil;

Little feet to walk His ways; Little hearts were made to love Him, Little bodies to be temples Little hands to do His will,

Where the Holy Spirit stays. Cho.- Rep. first four lines.


162 Something for Children to Do. Songs for Little

Folks, p. 88. 1 There is something on earth for the children to do,

For the child that is striving to be
Like the One who once murmured in accents of love,

“Let the little ones come unto Me."
Full Cho.—There is something to do, there is something to do,

There is something for children to do;
On the beautiful earth where the Saviour had birth

There is something for children to do.
2 There are sweet winning words to the weary and sad,

By their glad, loving lips to be said;

There are hearts that are waiting by some little hand
Unto Jesus, the Lord, to be led.

(Full Cho.) 3 There are lessons to learn both at home and at school,

There are battles to fight for the right,
There's a watch to be kept over temper and tongue,

And God's help to be asked day and night. (Full Cho.) 4 There are smiles to be given, kind deeds to be done,

Gentle words to be dropped by the way;
For the child that is seeking to follow the Lord

There is something to do every day. (Full Cho.)

We are coming.

Songs for Little

Folks, p. 107. 1 We are coming, blessed Saviour, A glorious mansion ever We hear Thy gentle voice;

For children young as we.
We would be Thine forever, We are coming, &c.
And in Thy love rejoice.

Our Father's house we see.


We are coming, we are coming,

3 We are coming, blessed Saviour,. We are coming, blessed Saviour;

To crown our Jesus King, We are coming, we are coming,

And then with angels ever We hear Thy gentle voice.

His praises we will sing.

We are coming, &c. 2 We are coming, blessed Saviour, To crown our Jesus King.

Our Father's house we see161 Christmas Hymn.

Songs for Little

Folks, p. 117. Little children, sweetly sing

3 On this birth-day of our King; Hark! a new song rends the skyNow a joyous anthem raise

"Glory be to God on high ! In glad notes of grateful praise. Peace on earth, good-will to men,

Christ is born in Bethlehem!” Let your joyful notes arise,

(Cho.) Join the chorus of the skies. (Rep. both lines.)

4 2

Children, catch the wondrous sound, See, He leaves His Father's throne, Let it peal the earth around, Lays aside Ilis starry crown, Till all nations, tribes, and men, And, to save the sons of men, Love the Babe of Bethlehem. Christ is born in Bethlehem.-Cho.
