|Four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for your little ones. (Gen. 47:24)
|Their young ones are in good liking, they grow up with corn; they go forth. (Job 39:4)
|As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby. (1 Peter 2:2)
|The soul of a child is the loveliest flower
That grows in the garden of God;
Its climb is from weakness to knowledge and
Through the feeding on God’s wondrous Word.
|To beauty and sweetness it grows under care;
Neglected, ’tis ragged and wild;
’Tis a plant that is tender but wondrously rare,
The sweet, wistful soul of a child.
