THE SHOWER OF PEARLS.

GOD.

When I look up to yonder sky,
So pure, so bright, so wondrous high,
I think of one I cannot see,
But one who sees and cares for me.

His name is God, he gave me birth,
And every living thing on earth;
And every tree and plant that grows
To the same hand its being owes.

'Tis He my daily food provides,
And all that I require besides :
And when I close my slumbering eye,
I sleep in peace, for he is nigh.

B

Then surely I should ever love
This gracious God, who reigns above ;
For very good indeed is he!
To love a little child like me.

THE COTTON TREE AND THE BOOK.

Fair befal the cotton tree!

Bravely may it grow,
Bearing in its seeded pod

Cotton, white as snow.

Spin the cotton into thread ;

Weave it in the loom ;-
Wear it now, thou little child,

In thy happy home!

Thou hast worn it, little child,

Wondrous cotton tree !
Did this paper ?--did this book

Spring and grow from thee?
