1 The gentle Saviour calls
Our children to his breast;
He folds them in his gracious arms,
Himself declares them blest.
2 "Let them approach" He cries,
"Nor scorn their humble claim;
The heirs of heaven are such as these,
For such as these I came."
3 Gladly we bring them, Lord,
Devoting them to Thee,
Imploring that, as we are thine,
Thine may our offspring be.
Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, 1871
