1 O Blessed comforter draw near!
Bestow thy grace divine:
We dedicate this infant here,
To be forever thine.
2 And as this water is appli'd,
So let thy grace by giv'n;
Until this child be sactifi'd
And made the heir of heav'n.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CLXXIV
