God the Father, name we treasure
God the father, name we treasure,
each new generation draws
from the past that you have given
for the future that is yours:
may these children, in your keeping,
love your ways, obey your laws.
2. Christ, the name that Christians carry;
Christ, who from the Father came,
calling us to share your sonship,
for these children grace we claim:
may they be your true disciples,
yours in deed as well as name.
3. Holy Spirit, from the Father
on the friends of Jesus poured:
may our children share those graces
promised to them in the word,
and their gifts find rich fulfilment,
dedicated to our Lord.
