10636. Father, Son And Holy Ghost

1 Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Bless the young before Thee;
Thou their wants and dangers know’st
Watch them, we implore Thee.
Here they stand, hopeful band,
Faith in Thee confessing,
Waiting for Thy blessing.

2 Gentle Savior, they are Thine,
Thou wilt never lose them;
May Thy life and love divine
Melt their tender bosom.
Lord, we pray that they may
All like Thee, be holy,
Loving, meek, and lowly.

3 Giver Thou of gifts to all,
No good thing deny them;
Hear, O hear our earnest call,
Life and light supply them.
Strength renew, keep them true;
All that stand before Thee,
Bless them, we implore Thee.
