Title: Poem Of Redemption
From: The Idiot
Original caption: Hark! a tender Saviour speaks,
And the lonely silence breaks:
"Little children, come to me,
I will your Redeemer be;
I will save from every ill,
I will be your guardian still.

Dangers throng you every way,
Dangers haunt you night and day;
But my presence shall protect,
And my spirit will direct.
Only come and prove my love,
And I'll lift your souls above."
