Behold us Lord before Thee met

Behold us, Lord, before Thee met
Whom each bright angel
serves and fears,
Who on Thy throne
rememberest yet
Thy spotless
boyhoodís quiet years;
Whose feet the hills
of Nazareth trod,
Who art true Man and perfect God.

To Thee we look, in Thee confide,
Our help is in
Thine own dear Name;
For who on Jesus eíer relied,
And found not Jesus still the same?
Thus far Thy love
our souls hath brought:
O stablish well
what Thou hast wrought.

From Thee was
our baptismal grace,
The holy seed by Thee was sown;
And now before our Fatherís face
We make the three
great vows our own,
And ask, in Thine appointed way,
Confirm us in Thy grace today.

The seed of our baptismal life,
O living Word, by thee was sown;
so where thy soldiers
wage their strife
our post we take,
our vows we own,
and ask, in thine appointed way,
confirm us in thy grace today.

We need Thee more
than tongue can speak,
íMid foes that well
might cast us down;
But thousands,
once as young and weak,
Have fought the fight,
and won the crown;
We ask the help
that bore them through;
We trust the Faithful and the True.

So bless us with the gift complete
By hands of Thy chief pastors givín,
That awful Presence kind and sweet,
Which comes in
sevenfold might from Heavín;
Eternal Christ, to Thee we bow:
Give us Thy Spirit here and now.
