Gracious Savior, who didst honor womankind

Representative Text

1 Gracious Saviour, who didst honor
Womankind as woman’s son;
Very Man, though God begotten,
And with God the Father one--
Grant that womanhood may be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.

2 Jesus, Son of human mother,
Bless our motherhood, we pray;
Give us grace to lead our children,
Draw them to Thee day by day;
May our sons and daughters be
Dedicated, Lord, to Thee.

3 Thou who didst with Joseph labor,
Nor didst humble work disdain,
Grant we may Thy footsteps follow
Patiently through toil or pain;
May our quiet home-life be
Lived, O Lord, in Thee, to Thee.

4 Thou who didst go forth in sorrow,
Toiling for the souls of men,
Thou who shalt draw all men to Thee,
Though despised, rejected then;
Humble though our influence be,
Use it in the world for Thee.
