A Quote by Cecil Frances Alexander on children, christianity, day, good, obedience, tears, and weakness

Christian children all must be Mild, obedient, good as He. . . . . For He is our childhood's pattern, Day by day like us He grew, He was little, weak, and helpless, Tears and smiles like us He knew; And He feeleth for our sadness, And He shareth in our gladness.

Cecil Frances Alexander (1818 - 1895)
