1 How can we see the children, Lord,
Whom thou in love hast given,
Remain regardless of thy word,
Without a hope of heaven?
2 Lord, hear the parents' earnest cry,
And save our children dear;
Now send thy Spirit from on high,
And fill them with thy fear.
3 O make them love thy holy law,
And joyful walk therein;
Their hearts to new obedience draw;
Save them from every sin.
