This next hymn was found in God Is Love; or, Memorials of Little Nony published in Volume IV of the Havergal edition.
(Frances had wanted to write a Memorial of Nony Heywood, but she died an unexpectedly early death at 42 and a half, only 33 days after Nony died.)
The author of this hymn is not known, very likely not F.R.H.
Lord, look upon a little child,
By nature sinful, rude, and wild;
Oh ! put Thy gracious hands on me,
And make me all I ought to be.
Make me Thy child, a child of God,
Washed in my Saviour’s precious blood;
And my whole heart from sin set free,
A little vessel full of Thee.
A star of early dawn, and bright,
Shining within Thy sacred light;
A beam of light to all around,
A little spot of hallowed ground.
Dear Jesus, take me to Thy breast,
And bless me that I may be blest;
Both when I wake and when I sleep,
Thy little lamb in safety keep.
