“Keep this for me.”
What child has not said this,
And placed a treasure in his Mother’s hand
With strict injunction she should keep it safe
Till he return?
He knows with her it will be safe;
No troubled thought or anxious fear besets his mind,
And off he runs light-hearted to his play.
If children can so trust, why cannot we,
And place our treasures, too, in God’s safe hand;
Our hopes, ambitions, needs, and those we love,
Just see them, in his all embracing care,
And say with joyous heart, “They are with Thee.”
