Franconia (König), in Harmonischer Lieder-Schatz, by Johann B. König (Frankfurt, Germany: 1738), harmonized in Old Church Psalmody, by William H. Havergal, 1847 (🔊 pdf nwc).

The Savior kindly calls
Our children to His breast;
He folds them in His gracious arms,
Himself declares them blest.

Let them approach, He cries,
Nor scorn their humble claim;
The heirs of Heav’n are such as these,
For such as these I came.

With joy we bring them, Lord,
Devoting them to Thee,
Imploring that, as we are Thine,
Thine may our offspring be.
