I could find out little about the writer of this song. Her name was Nellie Talbot and she was a Sunday School teacher. Fitting she would write a song that children could sing to express their love and obedience to Jesus.
There are very few " hymns" written during the early days of the church for young children that are still used today. Those of us who have been in church for over 50 years remember this song. I will post a video of it for those of you that have never heard it.
I was thinking about children today because it is the birthday of my grandson Dustin. My prayer for him is that he will " shine for Him each day". Happy Birthday Dustin.
