Treasure Island

Children


Love's breath calling God's Spirit and joy
Eternal the seed that lights our eyes
Children of laughter, child of woe
Fragile their trust, Life's candle glows

His own given pure in grace and strife
Knowing, innocent; mortal as the flame
Children of beauty, child of night
Blessed by His Spirit, our own true light
