Unknown, tr. Samuel Gilman, 1823; German text it was taken from?
This child we dedicate to Thee,|
O God of grace and purity;
Shield it from sin and threatening wrong,
And let Thy love its life prolong.
2. Oh, may Thy Spirit gently draw
3. We, too, before Thy gracious sight|
Once shared the blest baptismal rite
And would renew its solemn vow
With love and thanks and praises now.
4. Grant that with true and faithful heart
