The Cyber Hymnal#3791
|Text:||A Little Child the Savior Came|
|Composer:||François Hippolyte Barthélémon|
1. A little child the Savior came,
The Mighty God was still His name;
And angels worshiped as He lay
The seeming infant of a day.
2. He who, a little child, began
The life divine to show to man,
Proclaims from Heav’n the message free;
Let little children come to Me.
3. We bring them, Lord, and with the sign
Of sprinkled water name them Thine;
Their souls with saving grace endow;
Baptize them with Thy Spirit now.
4. O give Thine angels charge, good Lord,
Them safely in Thy way to guard;
Thy blessing on their lives command,
And write their names upon Thy hand.
5. O Thou, who by an infant’s tongue
Dost hear Thy perfect glory sung,
May these, with all the heav’nly host,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
