1 This child we now present to you,
O gracious God; its heart make new;
Shield it from sin and threat'ning wrong,
And let your love its life prolong.
2 Oh, may your Spirit gently draw
Its willing soul to keep your Law!
May virtue, piety, and truth
Dawn even with its dawning youth!
3 We too before your gracious sight
Once shared the blest baptismal rite;
Its covenant we here renew
With love and thanks and praise to you.
4 Grant that with true and faithful heart
We still may act the Christian's part,
Cheered by each promise you have giv'n
And lab'ring for the prize in heav'n.
