O Father, for This Little Life
O Father, for this little life|
Entrusted from above,
Ere yet he face earth's sin and strife,
We supplicate thy love.
As Hannah to the Temple gate
Her dearest treasure bore,
So, Lord, to thee we consecrate
This child for evermore.
Thy faithful soldier, may he fight
With falsehood, sin, and shame,
And loosing all to win the right
Confess thy holy name.
Thy faithful servant, may he learn
To love and labour still,
And with a flaming spirit burn
To know and do thy will.
O Saviour, all he is is thine,
And all he yet may be:
O shelter him with love divine,
And draw him near to thee.
For thou, O Lord, art all our life,
In thee all struggles end:
Through all the sorrow and the strife
Our Maker and our Friend.
