He shall gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom.@Isaiah 40:11

Cecilia Havergal, in Royal Praise for the Sunday School, edited by James R. Murray (Cincinnati, Ohio: The John Church Company, 1888), page 49.

Cartagena Winthrop, 1888 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Yes, His little ones He holdeth,
With His own, with His own right hand,
Teaching, teaching them so gently
Just to learn, just to learn to stand.

Yes, His little ones He guardeth
With a watchful, a watchful eye,
Warning them when danger cometh,
Standing ever, yes, ever nigh.

Yes, His little ones He biddeth
With His tender, His tender voice,
Fear thou not, for I am with thee,
So be glad, and rejoice, rejoice.
