1 Great Saviour, who didst condescend
Young children in Thine arms t'embrace,
Still prove Thyself the infants' friend,
Baptize them with Thy cleansing grace.
2 Whilst in the slippery paths of youth,
Be Thou their Guardian and their Guide,
That they, directed by Thy truth,
May never from Thy precepts slide.
3 To love Thy word their hearts incline,
To understand it, light impart;
O Saviour, consecrate them Thine,
Take full possession of their heart.
