All the fee. ble gen - tly lead - ing, While the lambs Thybo - som share;

A.

1 SAVIOUR, who Thy flock art feeding

With the shepherd's kindest care,
All the feeble gently leading,

While the lambs Thy bosom share;

2 Now, these little ones receiving,

Fold them in Thy gracious arm;
There, we know, Thy word believing,

Only there secure from harm.

3 Never, from Thy pasture roving,

Let them be the lion's prey;
Let Thy tenderness, so loving,

Keep them through life's dangerous way.

4 Then, within Thy fold eternal

Let them find a resting place,
Feed in pastures ever vernal,

Drink the rivers of Thy grace.

William A. Mühlenberg, 1826

HOLY Lord, content to fill

In lowly home the lowliest place, Thy childhood's law a mother's will,

Obedience meek Thy brighest grace;

2 Lead every child that bears Thy name

To walk in Thine own guileless way, To dread the touch of sin and shame,

And humbly, like Thyself, obey.

3 Gather Thy lambs within Thine arm,

And gently in Thy bosom bear;
Keep them, O Lord, from hurt and harm,

And bid them rest for ever there.

4 So shall they, waiting here below,

Like Thee, their Lord, a little span,
In wisdom and in stature grow,
And favor with both God and man.

Wm. Walsham How, 1850, 1871

3 Fulfil Thy covenant of love,

Baptize our children from above;
Thy best, Thy highest gift impart,
The blessing of a childlike heart,
And mould them through life's strain and stress
To the full growth of perfectness.

Ella S. Armitage, 1887

5 ( bright the conqueror's crown,

The song of triumph sweet,
When faith casts every trophy down
At our great Captain's feet!

1 SAVIOUR, while my heart is tender, 2 Send me, Lord, where Thou wilt send me, D I would yield that heart to Thee;

Only do Thou guide my way; All my powers to Thee surrender,

May Thy grace through life attend me, Thine and only Thine to be.

Gladly then shall I obey. Take me now, Lord Jesus, take me, Let me do Thy will or bear it, Let my youthful heart be Thine,

I would know no will but Thine; Thy devoted servant make me,

Should'st Thou take my life or spare it, Fill my soul with love divine.

I that life to Thee resign.
3 May this solemn consecration

Never once forgotten be;
Let it know no revocation-

Registered, confirmed by Thee.
Thine I am, O Lord, for ever,

To Thy service set apart;
Suffer me to leave Thee never,
Set Thine image on my heart.

John Burton, 1850
