Father of heaven, who hast created all

Father of heaven, who hast created all
In wisest love, we pray,
Look on this child, who at thy gracious call
Is entering on life's way!
O make it thine, thy blessing give,
That to thy glory it may live,
Father of heaven!

O Son of God, atoning Lord, behold
We bring this child to thee;
Take it, O loving Shepherd, to thy Fold
For ever thine to be:
Defend it through this earthly strife,
And lead it in the path of life,
O Son of God!

O Holy Ghost, who broodest o'er the wave,
Descend upon this child;
Give it undying life, its spirit lave
With waters undefiled;
And make it evermore to be
A child of God, a home for thee,
O Holy Ghost!

O Triune God, what thou hast willed is done;
We speak: but thine the might;
This child hath scarce yet seen our earthly sun,
Yet pour on it thy light
Of faith, and hope, and joyful love,
Thou Sun of all below, above,
O Triune God.
