  Thank God For Little Children  

 

Thank God for little children,
     Bright flowers by earth's wayside,
The dancing, joyous lifeboats
     Upon life's stormy tide.

Thank God for little children;
     When our skies are cold and gray,
They come as sunshine to our hearts,
     And charm our cares away.

I almost think the angels,
     Who tend life's garden fair,
Drop down the sweet wild blossoms
     That bloom around us here.

It seems a breath of heaven
     Round many a cradle lies,
And every little baby
     Brings a message from the skies.

Dear mothers, guard these jewels.
     As sacred offerings meet,
A wealth of household treasures
     To lay at Jesus' feet.

       - Frances E. W. Harper
