Thy life I read my gracious Lord With transport




Thy life I read, my dearest Lord,
With transport all divine;
Thine image trace in every word,
|: Thy love in every line. :|


Methinks I see a thousand charms
Spread o’er Thy lovely face,
While infants in Thy tender arms
|: Receive the smiling grace. :|


“I take these little lambs,” said He,
“And lay them in My breast;
Protection they shall find in Me,
|: In Me be ever blest. :|


“Death may the bands of life unloose,
But can’t dissolve My love;
Millions of infant souls compose,
|: The family above.” :|


---Alternative verses---


Thy life I read, my gracious Lord,
With transport all divine;
Thine image trace in every word,
|: Thy love in every line. :|
