1 God spake, my child, God spake to thee:
"I will thy God and Father be!"
Say thou to Him: "O Father mine,
I am Thy child; yes, truly Thine!"

2 God spake, my child, God spake to thee:
"I will thy Lord and Saviour be!"
Say thou to Him: "O Saviour mine,
I will no service know but thine!"

3 God spake, my child, God spake to thee:
"I will thy Light and Comfort be!"
Say thou to Him: "Light, Comfort mien,
Dwell Thou in me; my heart is Thine!"

4 When baptized in His Name, to thee
God spake, my child, thus tenderly;
Consider well His words divine,
Say ever: "Lord, I will be Thine!"
