Hymn/Song Information

Lord of life who once wast cradled




Lord of life, who
once wast cradled
On a human motherís knee,
Fed and clothed,
and taught and guided
Through the years of infancy:
Help and bless us, as we gather
With our cares and needs to Thee.


Waking in the early morning
To the round which
each day brings;
Sitting late into the evening,
Making garments, mending things:
Give us strength
and cheerful patience
For these common happenings.


Lord, we thank Thee
for our children
With their faces bright and fair,
With their laughter
and their temper,
Waking gladness, bring care:
Teach us how to keep them upright,
True and gallant, everywhere.


Show us when to hold
and curb them,
When to set them finely free,
How to keep
their love and reverence
Stainless through the year to be,
How to win their adoration
And their loyalty to Thee.


And since we have often faltered,
Missed the road and lost our way,
Known temptation,
met with trouble,
Hear us parents, as we pray:
Be Thyself their guide and master.
Shape and fit them for their day.
