1 Blest is the man whose heart expands
At melting pity's call,
And the rich blessings of whose hands
Like heav'nly manna fall.
2 Be ours the bliss in wisdom's way
To guide untutor'd youth,
And lead the mind that went astray
To virtue and to truth.
3 Children our kind protection claim,
And God will well approve,
When infants learn to lisp his name,
And their Creator love.
4 Delightful work, young souls to win,
And turn the rising race
From the deceitful paths of sin,
To seek redeeming grace!
5 Almighty God! thy influence shed
To aid this good design:
The honours of thy name be spread,
And all the glory thine.
