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