Tune: C.M. (FE 713)
1. BEHOLD all worthy in-stan-ces
In the Bible so true
To them who love to serve the Lord
From birth and unto death.
2. Christ Jesus, Lord in high above
The earth His glory fill
He was like I am an infant
Law of God keepeth He.
3. At tender age, all but at twelve
Jews leadeth He aright
Behold Him so gentle and meek
Harkneth He to the mum.
4. E’en though despiseth of the Jews
Alas! though He was mocked
To Him the kids glory they give
Loud hosannah they rend.
5. Like manner Samuel, Timothy
All from the in-fan-cy
ln zeal they worshippeth the Lord
Thus, I ought, God to serve.
6. Must I forsake the Lord, my God?
His service to ignore?
My pledge is all but God to serve
In goodwill and in love. Amen
