"suffer Little Children, And Forbid Them Not, To Come Unto Me"

To Jesus our Saviour some parents presented
Their children--what fears and what hopes they must feel!
When this the disciples would fain have prevented,
Our Saviour reprov'd their unseas'nable zeal.

Not only free leave to come to him was given,
But "Of such" were the blessed words Christ our Lord spake,
"Of such is composed the kingdom of heaven:"
The disciples, abashed, perceiv'd their mistake.

With joy then the parents their children brought nigher,
And earnestly begg'd that his hands he would lay
On their heads; and they made a petition still higher,
That he for a blessing upon them would pray.

O happy young children, thus brought to adore him,
To kneel at his feet, and look up in his face;
No doubt now in heaven they still are before him,
Children still of his love, and enjoying his grace.

For being so blest as to come to our Saviour,
How deep in their innocent hearts it must sink!
'Twas a visit divine; a most holy behaviour
Must flow from that spring of which then they did drink.

I have taught your young lips the good words to say over, Which form the petition we call the Lord's Pray'r, And now let me help my dear child to discover The meaning of all the good words that are there. "Our Father," the same appellation is given To a parent on earth, and the parent of all-- O gracious permission, the God that's in heaven Allows his poor creatures him Father to call.
