Description of The Coloring Page: "And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived." Numbers 21:9 King James Bible

In the Gospel of John, Jesus discusses his destiny with a Jewish teacher named Nicodemus and makes a comparison between the raising up of the Son of Man and the act of the serpent being raised up by Moses for the healing of the people.

Charles Spurgeon preached a famous sermon on "the Mysteries of the Brazen Serpent" and this passage from John's Gospel in 1857.

scripture, " But Samson lay there only until the middle of the night. Then he got up and took hold of the doors of the city gate, together with the two posts, and tore them loose, bar and all.

When thou art kneeling down at night...

Click to enlarge.
Description of Coloring Page: praying, kneeling, children mother, wash bin, bedroom, dark, rock to sleep
And forgive us our Trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us. 

WHEN thou art kneeling- down at night, 
Beside thy mother's knee to pray, 
And thinking over all thy sins, 
Done through the busy day ; 

Then call to mind thy brother's wrong, 
To strife by angry passions driven, 
And in thy heart forgive him all, 
As thou would'st be forgiven. 

Go, throw thy little arms around 
His neck, and kiss him tenderly, 
Nor turn away with pouting lip, 
And sullen tearful eye. 

Thou hast sinned more against thy GOD, 
Than ever brother sinned to thee ; 
If He should turn away His face, 
How wretched would'st thou be. 

Dost thou remember when thy LORD 
Hung on His cruel Cross so long, 
How in His agony He pray'd 
For those that did Him wrong? 

They nailed His hands, they pierced His feet, 
Their angry hearts no pity knew, 
"FATHER, forgive them," was His cry, 
"They know not what they do." 

Go, seek thy little brother's side, 
And press to his thy rosy cheek, 
And whisper the forgiveness free 
He is too proud to seek. 

Then as the brightest ray from heaven 
Doth on the glittering dewdrop fall, 
Thy penitence shall be received, 
And GOD forgive thee all.

The angels stand around Thy Throne...

Description of Coloring Page: angels, heaven, praying, worshiping, singing to God
Thy will be done, in Earth as it is in Heaven 

THE Angels stand around Thy Throne, 
And wait Thy bidding every one, 
As stars around the full bright moon, 
Or clouds beneath the setting sun. 

Fair creatures, beautiful and bright, 
They do the will of GOD on high, 
His ministers to us on earth, 
Unseen their white wings gliding by. 

And children, too, may do GOD'S will, 
Each in his lowly earthly place ; 
For CHRIST hath said, " Our Angels bright 
Always behold the FATHER'S Face." 

LORD, when we say, " Thy will be done," 
May heart to lip be ever true: 
O ! give us grace to serve Thee here, 
As gladly as the Angels do. 

Like Him, the lowly Child, Who dwelt 
Where gleams the Galilean sea, 
Whose meat it was to do Thy will, 
Our Guide, our Trust, our Pattern, He. 

And if Thou send us pain or grief, 
If loss or anguish e'er befall, 
Still teach us, though with quivering lip, 
To say, "Thy will be done in all." 

Thus did our LORD in anguish pray, 
Saying, " Not My will, LORD, but Thine;" 
So kneel we at our FATHER'S Feet, 
And all our wills to Him resign.

I love the little snowdrop flower...

Description of Coloring Page: snowdrop chain, two little sisters, field of flowers, family, path, park, trees, fields, cloudy day, siblings
I LOVE the little snowdrop flower, 
The first in all the year, 
Without a stain upon its leaf, 
So snowy white and clear. 

I love a little modest child, 
That speaketh quietly, 
That blushes up to its blue eyes, 
And hardly answers me. 

I sometimes think the Church's Saints 
Are flowers so fair and bright 
And that her little children are 
Her snowdrops sweet and white 

For pure of heart, and innocent, 
And teachable, and mild, 
And modest in its ways and words, 
Should be a Christian child. 

I do not like a loud rough tone, 
A look too boldly set, 
A greedy hand outstretched to seize 
Whatever it can get. 

I'd rather meet with downcast eyes, 
Sweet voices low and faint, 
For gentleness and modesty 
Become a little Saint.

Little birds sleep sweetly...

LITTLE birds sleep sweetly 
In their soft round nests, 
Crouching in the cover 
Of their mothers' breasts. 

Little lambs lie quiet, 
All the summer night, 
With their old ewe mothers, 
Warm, and soft, and white. 

But more sweet and quiet, 
Lie our little heads, 
With our own dear mothers, 
Sitting by our beds. 

And their soft sweet voices 
Sing our hush-a-bies, 
While the room grows darker 
As we shut our eyes. 

And we play at evening 
Round our father's knees, 
Birds are not so merry, 
Singing on the trees: 

Lambs are not so happy, 
'Mid the meadow flowers; 
They have play and pleasure, 
But not love like ours. 

But the heart that 's loving, 
Works of love will do; 
Those we dearly cherish, 
We must honor too: 

To our father's teaching 
Listen day by day, 
And our mother's bidding 
Cheerfully obey. 

For when in His childhood 
Our dear LORD was here, 
He too was obedient 
To His Mother dear. 

And His little children 
Must be good as He, 
Gentle, and submissive, 
As He used to be.

Within the churchyard, side by side...

The Resurrection of the Body. 

WITHIN the churchyard, side by side, 
Are many long low graves, 
And some have stones set over them, 
On some the green grass waves. 

Full many a little Christian child, 
Woman, and man, lies there; 
And we pass by them every time 
When we go in to prayer. 

They cannot hear our footsteps come, 
They do not see us pass, 
They cannot feel the bright warm sun 
That shines upon the grass. 

They do not hear when the great bell 
Is ringing overhead; 
They cannot rise and come to Church 
With us, for they are dead. 

But we believe a Day will come, 
When all the dead will rise, 
When they who sleep down in the grave, 
Will ope again their eyes. 

For CHRIST our LORD was buried once, 
He died and rose again, 
He conquered death, He left the grave, 
And so will Christian men. 

So when the friends we loved the best 
Lie in their churchyard bed, 
We must not cry too bitterly 
Over the happy dead;

I knew a little sickly child...

I believe in the Holy Ghost. 

I KNEW a little sickly child; 
A The long long summer's day, 
When all the world was green and bright, 
Alone in bed he lay. 
There used to come a little dove 
Before his window small, 
And sing to him with her sweet voice 
Out of the fir-tree tall. 

And when the sick child better grew, 
And he could crawl along, 
Close to that window he would creep, 
And listen to her song; 
And he was gentle in his speech, 
And quiet at his play; 
He would not for the world have made 
That sweet bird fly away. 

There is a Holy Dove that sings 
To every Christian child, 
That whispers to his little heart 
A song as sweet and mild. 
It is the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD, 
That speaks his soul within, 
That leads him on to all things good, 
And holds him back from sin. 

And he must hear that still small Voice, 
Nor tempt It to depart, 
The SPIRIT great and wonderful, 
That whispers to his heart; 
He must be pure, and good, and true, 
Must strive, and watch, and pray. 
For unresisted sin at last 
Will drive that Dove away.
