Gentle Savior, God of love,
Hear us from Thy throne above,
While we meet to praise Thee here,
In our Infant class so dear.
May the lessons we have heard
From Thy pure and holy word,
Make us what we ought to be,
Lead Thy little lambs to Thee.

Jesus, Thou wert once a child,
Make us humble, meek and mild.
Kindly fold us on Thy breast,
There Thy little lambs would rest.
In that happy world of light
Where the day is ever bright.
May our angel voices sing,
Glory! glory! to our king!
