340. BY COOL SILOAM'S SHADY RILL

Church Hymnal 1941,

1.
By cool Siloam's shady rill 
How fair the lily grows! 
How sweet the breath, beneath the hill, 
Of Sharon's dewy rose! 

2.
Lo, such the child whose early feet 
The paths of peace have trod, 
Whose secret heart, with influence sweet, 
Is upward drawn to God. 

3.
Dependent on Thy bounteous breath, 
We seek Thy grace alone, 
In childhood, manhood, age, and death, 
To keep us still Thine own.
