A Child's Own Book of Verse, Book One by  Ada M. Skinner and Frances Gillespy Wickes




In the pleasant sunny meadows,

Where the buttercups are seen,

And the daisies' little shadows

Lie along the level green,

Flocks of quiet sheep are feeding,

Little lambs are playing near,

And the watchful shepherd leading

Keeps them safe from harm and fear.

Like the lambs we little children

Have a shepherd kind and good;

It is God who watches o'er us,

Gives us life and daily food.
