Our children, Lord, in faith and prayer,
We now devote to Thee;
Let them Thy covenant mercies share,
And Thy salvation see.
Such helpless babes Thou didst embrace,
While dwelling here below;
To us and ours, O God of grace,
The same compassion show.
In early days their hearts secure,
From worldly snares, we pray;
O let them to the end endure
In every righteous way.
