2 'Tis for our children we would plead,
The offspring thou hast given;
Where shall we go, in time of need,
But to the God of heaven?

3 We ask not for them wealth and fame,
Amid the worldly strife;
But in thy all-prevailing name
We ask eternal life.

4 We seek the Spirit's quick'ning grace,
To make them pure in heart,
That they may stand before thy face,
And see thee as thou art.
