Within the Church's Sacred Fold

Author: Katherine D. CornishHymnal: The Cyber Hymnal #7521Meter: 8.8.6.8.8.6Hymnal Title: The Cyber HymnalFirst Line: Within the Church’s sacred foldLyrics: Substitute she/her for he/him if appropriate. 1. Within the Church’s sacred fold, By holy sacrament enrolled, Another lamb we lay: An heir before of sin and shame, Now in the holy triune name His guilt is washed away. 2. O loving Father, Thee we pray Look on this babe newborn today, Thine own adopted child; An angel guard do Thou bestow To lead him in Thy paths below, And guide him through the wild. 3. O God the Son, Thou heavenly vine, Protect this tender branch of Thine Through all that may betide; Forever nourished may he be With sap divine that flows from Thee, In Thee for aye abide. 4. Blest Spirit, whose indwelling grace Has given this little one a place Among the heirs of life; O breathe Thy sevenfold gifts within, And keep Thy temple pure from sin In midst of worldly strife. 5. So, holy Trinity, by Thee Divinely trained this babe may be In faith and hope and love; So may he gain, earth’s waves o’erpast, His bright inheritance at last With all Thy saints above.Languages: EnglishTune Title: KENILWORTH
