THE CHILD'S DESIRE

I think, as I read that sweet story of old,

When Jesus was here among men,

How He called little children as lambs to His fold,

I should like to have been with them then.

I wish that His hands had been placed on my head,

That His arms had been thrown around me,

And that I might have seen His kind look when He said,

"Let the little ones come unto me."


But still to His footstool in prayer I may go,

And ask for a share in His love:

And if I thus earnestly seek Him below,

I shall see Him and hear Him above,

In that beautiful place He has gone to prepare

For all that are washed and forgiven;

And many dear children are gathering there,

"For of such is the kingdom of heaven."

Jemima Luke
