1 All hail, thou day of wondrous grace,
My confirmation day,
When I the steps of God retrace,
Imprinted on my way.
2 When I was but an infant small,
He pledged His love to me;
He called me with a holy call
His child and heir to be.
3 The sacred washing I received,
That cleansed me well from sin;
Of ev'ry guilty stain relieved,
I now have peace within.
4 From parents kind and teachers true,
By Thee, my God, ordained,
I learned Thy holy will to do,
By faith in Christ sustained.
5 So now I come before Thy throne,
Thy precious name to bless,
Resolved to serve Thee as Thine own
In truth and holiness.
6 I consecrate myself to Thee
In body, soul and mind;
Do Thou but help and strengthen me,
Thou Hope of all mankind.
7 While in this world of sin and strife,
Vouchsafe to me Thy grace
Till I have reached the end of life
And see Thee face to face.
