413. Our Children, Lord in Faith and Prayer

1 Our children, Lord, in faith and pray'r,
we now devote to thee;
let them thy cov'nant 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.
