Littell's Living Age, vol. 117 from Matilda Betham-Edwards

Hymn for a Little Child

Within the world to glow;
A little flame that burneth bright,
Wherever I may go.

God make my life a little flower,
That giveth joy to all,
Content to bloom in native bower,
Although its place be small.

God make my life a little song,

Whereon the weak may rest,
That so what health and strength I have
May serve my neighbours best.
