O my child, fear God the Lord

O my child, fear God the Lord

Full Text

1 O my child, fear God the Lord,
Do not take in vain His word,
Holy keep the Sabbath day,
To thy parents honor pay,
Kill not, shun adultery,
Steal not, lies and slander flee,
Keep from covetousness free.

2 In the Father I believe,
Who to all their being gave,
And in His incarnate Son,
Who for man salvation won,
Also in the Holy Ghost,
In whose hallowing grace I trust,
Who will raise me from the dust.

3 Father dear, who art in heaven,
To Thy name e'er praise be given,
Unto us Thy kingdom come,
Everywhere thy will be done,
Give us bread, our sins forgive,
Let no tempter us deceive,
From all evil us relieve.

4 Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
Triune God, in Thee I boast,
Thou with water and the word
Didst baptize me, gracious Lord;
Grant that I may faithful be,
That I ever trust in Thee,
And be Thine eternally.

5 Dearest Lord, my soul do feed
With Thy flesh and real bread,
And refresh me, Saviour mine,
With Thy blood and real wine,
In remembrance, Lord, to Thee;
Grant forgiveness thus to me.
Unto Thee be praise for aye!
