    Almighty God, while earth and heaven
    Thy pow`r and skill proclaim;
    Wilt thou permit a child to sing
    The honors of thy name?


    Shall mortals aim at themes so great,
    Or raise their notes so high,
    When seraphs low beneath thy feet,
    In self abasement lie?


    Tho’ Gabriel tunes immortal lyres,
    To sweet seraphic lays;
    Th’ Eternal hears when infant tongues
    Attempt to lift his praise.


    The early dawn of op’ning life,
    Has prov’d thy guardian care;
    Nor shall I less thro' future years,
    Thy grace and goodness share.


    Behold I give myself to thee,
    And in thy name confide;
    Most gracious God, I deign to be
    My Father, Friend, and Guide.
