HYMN 670

C.M.S 460 t. H.C 506 C.M (FE 696)
"And we child grow and became strong 
in spirit." - Luke2:40

1.  BY cool Siloam’s shady rill

     How sweet the lily grows!

     How sweet the breath, beneath the hill 

     Of Sharon‘s dewy rose.

2.  Lot such the child whose early feet

     The paths of peace have trod

     Whose secret heart with influence sweet 

     ls upward drawn to God.

3.  By cool Siloam's shady rill

     The lily must decay

     The rose that blooms beneath the hill 

     Must shortly fade away.

4.  O Thou whose infant feet were found 

     Within Thy Father's shrine

     Whose years, with changeless virtue


     Were all alike divine.

5.  Dependent on Thy bounteous breath 

     We seek Thy grace alone

     In childhood, manhood, age, and death 

     To keep us still Thine own.  Amen
