What blest examples do I find
Writ in the Word of Truth,
Of children that begin to mind
Religion in their youth!
Jesus, who reigns above the sky,
And keeps the world in awe,
Was once a child as young as I,
And kept his Father’s law.
At twelve years old he talk’d with men,
(The Jews all wondering stand;)
Yet he obey’d his Mother then,
And came at her command.
Children a sweet hasanna sung,
And blest their Saviour’s name;
They gave him honour with their tongue,
While scribes and priests blaspheme.
Samuel the child was wean’d and brought
To wait upon the Lord:
Young Timothy betimes was taught
To know his holy Word.
Then why should I so long delay
What others learnt so soon?
I would not pass another day
Without this work begun.
