414. Dear Lord, Today Our Child

1 Dear Lord, today, our child,
an heritage from thee,
we bring in faith and claim for him
thy promise free.

2 Dear Lord, today, our child,
sweet token of thy love,
we bring into thy church
for blessings from above.

3 Dear Lord, today our child,
rich treasure of thy grace,
we bring upon his brow
the sign and seal to place.

4 Dear Lord, today, our child,
a gracious gift of thine,
we bring to set apart,
baptized in name divine.

5 Dear Lord, today our child,
the fruit of God-blessed seed,
we bring to thee to ask
for help in ev'ry need.
