Excerpt from book:
It next tripped by a cottage door, And shone across the sanded floor, Until the children stopped their play To bless the little golden ray. May we all like this sunbeam be From every selfish motive free, Willing to do all in our power To fill with joy each coming hour. Gentle Words. How sweet are words of kindness From dear ones that we love! How like celestial favors Descended from above ! / guard these wordy treasures As miser guards his hoards. How costless, yet how priceless, Are sweet and gentle words! Gently Check A Child. A child, when asked why a certain tree grew crooked, replied, " Somebody trod upon it, I suppose, when it was little." He who checks a child with terror, Stops its play and stills its song, Not alone commits an error, But a grievous moral wrong. Give it play and never fear it: Active life is no defect; Never, never break its spirit; Curb it only to direct. Would you stop the flowing river, Thinking it would cease to flow? Onward must it flow for ever: Better teach it where to go. The Child's Prayer. Into her chamber went A little maid one day, And by a chair she knelt, And thus began to pray: " Jesus, my eyes I close— Thy form I cannot see; If thou art near me, Lord, I pray thee speak to me." A still small voice she heard within her call: " What is it, child ? I hear thee; tell me all." " I pray thee, Lord," she said, "That thou wilt condescend To tarry in my heart, And ever be my friend. The path of life is dark— I would not go astray; Oh, let me have thy hand To lead me in the way." " Fear not; I will not leave thee, child, alone." She thought she felt a soft hand press her own. " They tell me, Lord, that all The living pass away— The aged soon must die, And even c...

It next tripped by a cottage door, And shone across the sanded floor, Until the children stopped their play To bless the little golden ray.
