S.M.

1
If David tuned his harp,
Of Christ the Lord to sing,
Delighting much to praise in psalms
His promised Priest and King;

2
Much more believers now,
In this more favoured day,
Should sing His praise, who since has come
And put their sins away.

3
And O! how sweet it is,
When children’s hearts are led
The pleasant paths of faith and love
In early life to tread.

4
When learning much of Christ,
And more and more of truth,
They seek, as David did of old,
To serve Him in their youth.
