THIRD DEVOTIONAL SONG.

1 OUR Father and Almighty Lord,
2 By angels and by saints adored,
3 With starry brightness circled round,
4 Gleam beyond gleam, which hath no bound,
5 Though He be high and we are low,
6 Accepts the grateful thanks that flow
7 From infant lips, and to the skies,
8 Like morning's early vapour rise;
9 The simplest child who lisps a prayer,
10 His mercy and his love will share.
