1By cool Siloam’s shady rill,
How sweet the lily grows!
How sweet the breath beneath the hill
Of Sharon’s dewy rose!
2Lo, such the child whose early feet
The paths of peace have trod;
Whose secret heart, with influence sweet,
Is upward drawn to God.
3By cool Siloam’s shady rill,
The lily must decay;
The rose that blooms beneath the hill,
Must shortly fade away.
4And soon, too soon, the wintry hour
Of man’s maturer age,
Will shake the soul with sorrow’s power
And stormy passions rage.
5O Thou, Whose infant feet were found
Within Thy Father’s shrine,
Whose years, with changeless virtue crowned
Were all alike divine:
6Dependent on Thy bounteous breath,
We seek Thy grace alone,
In childhood, manhood, age, and death,
To keep us still Thine own. Amen.
