L. M.


The Child of God.

None loves me, Father, with Thy love,

None else can meet such needs as mine;

O, grant me, as Thou shall approve,

All that befits a child of Thine!

From every doubt and fear release,

And give me confidence and peace.

Give me a faith shall never fail,

One that shall always work by love;

And then, whatever foes assail,

They shall but higher courage move

More boldly for the truth to strive,

And more by faith in Thee to live:

A heart, that, when my days are glad,

May never from Thy way decline,

And when the sky of life grows sad,

May still submit its will to Thine,—

A heart that loves to trust in Thee,

A patient heart, create in me!
