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.
