1 The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him,
And his righteousness unto children's children;
2 To such as keep his covenant,
And to those that remember his commandments to do them.
3 For the promise is unto you,
And to your children;
And to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
4 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd;
He shall gather the lambs with his arm,
And carry them in his bosom.
5 I will pour my Spirit upon thy seed,
And my blessing upon thine offspring.
6 And Jesus said, Suffer little children to come unto me,
And forbid them not;
For of such is the kingdom of heaven.
7 All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth:
8 Go ye, therefore, and teach all nations,
Baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost;
9 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you;
And lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
