O God, your life-creating love

O God, your life-creating love
this sacred trust to parents gave.
In Christ your power came from above
your children here to claim and save.

2. Help us who now our pledges give
the young to cherish, guard and guide,
to learn of Christ, and so to live
that they may in your love abide.

3. Grant, Lord, as strength and wisdom grow,
that every child your truth may learn.
Impart your light, that each may know
your will, and life’s true way discern.

4. Then home and child, kept in your peace,
and guarded, Father, by your care,
will in the grace of Christ increase,
and all your kingdom’s blessings share.
