AY the grace of Christ our Saviour, 2 Thus may we abide in union
And the Father's boundless love,

With each other and the Lord, With the Holy Spirit's favor,

And possess, in sweet communion, Rest upon us from above.

Joys which earth cannot afford.

Like Thee, their Lord, a little span,
In wisdom and in stature grow,
And favor with both God and man.

3 Fulfil Thy covenant of love,

Baptize our children from above;
Thy best, Thy highest gift impart,
The blessing of a childlike heart,
And mould them through life's strain and stress
To the full growth of perfectness.

soldier of the cross,
Thy high allegiance claim,
And vow to hold the world but loss

For Thy Redeemer's name!

2 Arise and be baptized,

And wash thy sins away;
Thy league with God be solemnized,

Thy faith avouched to-day !

3 No more thine own, but Christ's,

With all the saints of old,
Apostles, seers, evangelists,

And martyr throngs enrolled,

4 In God's whole armor strong,

Front hell's embattled powers!
The warfare may be sharp and long,

The victory must be ours.

5 ( bright the conqueror's crown,

The song of triumph sweet,
When faith casts every trophy down
At our great Captain's feet!

Edward H. Bickersteth, 1870
