Are All The Children In ?

I think ofttimes as the night draws nigh
Of an old house on the hill,
Of a yard all wide and blossom starred
Where the children played at will.
And when the night at last came down,
Hushing the merry din,
Mother would look around and ask,

"Tis many and many a year since then,
And the old house on the hill
No longer echoes to childish feet,
And the yard is still,so still,.
But I see it all, as the shadows creep,
And though many the years have been
Since then, I can hear my mother ask,

I wonder if when the shadows fall
On the last short, earthly day,
When we say good-by to the world outside,
All tired with our childish play,
When we step out into that other land,
Where Mother so long has been,
Will we hear her ask, just as of old,

Read the following Scriptures as to our responsibility to get our children in:

Then were there brought unto Him little children, that He should  put His hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them (Matt. 19:13)

But Jesus called them unto Him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not: for such is the kingdom of God (Luke 18:16)

Hear,O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk to them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up (Deut. 6:4-7).
