1 This child we dedicate to Thee,
O God of grace and purity!
In Thy great love its life prolong;
Shield it, we pray, from sin and wrong.
2 O may Thy Spirit gently draw
Its willing soul to keep Thy law;
May virtue, piety, and truth
Dawn even with its dawning youth.

This child we dedicate to Thee. S. Gilman. [Holy Baptism.] Professor Bird dates this 1823. Putnam, in his Singers and Songs, &c, 1874, p. 73, gives it in full as a translation from the German. The original we have not traced.
