632. Our children, Lord, in faith and prayer

1 Our children, Lord, in faith and prayer,
we now devote to you;
let them your covenant mercies share,
and your salvation true.

2 Such children you did once embrace,
while dwelling here below;
to us and ours, O God of grace,
the same compassion show.

3 Dear Lord, your infant feet were found
within your Father's shrine;
your years, with changeless virtue crowned,
were all alike divine.

4 Dependent on your bounteous breath,
we seek your grace alone,
in every stage of life and death,
to keep us still your own.
