1 O Lord, our little ones to Thee
In faith and hope we give;
We know that thro' this mystery
Their new-born souls shall live.
2 We pour the water on their brow,
The sacred words we say;
Baptize them with the Spirit now,
And keep them Thine alway.
3 Help them to go from strength to strength,
Until, full-grown in Thee,
They come before Thy face at length,
And all Thy glory see.
4 And then, with all the heavenly host,
In everlasting songs,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
To whom all praise belongs.
