Dedication of Samuel

A graceful time of ruling
Appointed judge
Ruler of the people, keeper of the land
In a place of promise, Israelites reside
As the year draws near, voyage to Shiloh
Called to worship, offer your sacrifice
Here Hannah would pray
To grant her a son, Lord have your way
A solemn request
To ask of God, an answered prayer
Arrival of Samuel, so to dedicate
From a time of birth, till weaning transpired
His time had come
A due journey to the high-priest
Reflections of the temple
Eli saw she had prayed
A promise fulfilled
Clad in garments of white
Peace be still
Samuel shall stay, Samuel shall serve
In the ministry of the temple
Of valued worth
