410. Lord Jesus Christ, Our Lord Most Dear

1 Lord Jesus Christ, our Lord most dear,
as thou wast once an infant here,
so give this child of thine, we pray,
thy grace and blessing day by day.

O holy Jesus, Lord divine,
we pray thee guard this child of thine.

2 As in thy heav'nly kingdom, Lord,
all things obey thy sacred Word,
do thou thy mighty succor give,
and shield this child by morn and eve. [Refrain]

3 Their watch let angels round him keep
where'er he be, awake, asleep;
thy saving grace on him bestow
that he in thee may live and grow. [Refrain]
