Lord, Bless Your Word to All the Young

Representative Text

1 Lord, bless your Word to all the young;
let them, your truth possessing,
declare your praise with heart and tongue,
their faith in Christ confessing.
From birth your firm embrace
has held them in your grace.
Baptized into your name,
redeemed and free from blame,
as your dear children keep them.

2 When faced with pressure, grief, or pain,
when Satan comes alluring,
may their baptismal grace remain
a refuge reassuring.
God's promises are sure;
his mercy will endure.
They shall not be undone
who trust in Christ alone;
God is their mighty Father!
