\ Of wisdom and of grace,
I "When children bless and praise their King,
} "Who loves the youthful race.
I 2 Sweet is the dawn of day,
I When light just streaks the sky;
| When shades and darkness pass away,
\ And morning's beams are nigh:
| But sweeter far, the dawn
| Of piety in youth,
I When doubt and darkness are withdraws,
I Before the light of truth.
J dot 3 Sweet is the early dew,
j Which gilds the mountains' tops,
$ And decks each plant and flower we view,
I With pearly glittering drops:
| But sweeter far, the scene
| On Zion's holy hill,
| When there the dew of youth is seen Its freshness to distill.
