BLESS, DEAR SAVIOUR, THIS CHILD, by            
First Line: Jesus, we lift our souls to thee
Last Line: A follower of thine.
Subject(s): Jesus Christ


Jesus, we lift our souls to Thee,
Thy Holy Spirit breathe,
And let this little infant be
Baptized into Thy death.

O let Thine unction on him rest,
Thy grace his soul renew,
And write within his tender breast
Thy name and nature too.

If Thou shouldst quickly end his days,
His place with Thee prepare;
And if Thou lengthen out his race,
Continue still Thy care.

Thy faithful servant let him prove,
Begirt with truth divine;
A sharer in Thy dying love,
A follower of thine.
