Lyrics

O God, great Father, Lord and King,
our children unto you we bring.
We come in faith and hope and love;
we dare your steadfast word to prove.
Your covenant blessing did of old
our parents and their seed enfold.
That ancient promise stands secure
and shall while heaven and earth endure.
Look down upon us while we pray
and visit us in grace today.
These little ones you did receive;
your precious promise we believe.
They now the outward sign receive;
your promised Holy Spirit give.
O keep and help them by your power
in every hard and trying hour.
Direct their feet in holy ways
and shine on them through darkest days.
Uphold them till their life is past
and bring them all to heaven at last.
