Holy Baptism 341. A little child the Savior came



Christopher Edwin Willing, 1868

William Robertson, 1861

A little child the Savior came,

The Mighty God was still his Name;

And angels worshipped as he lay,

The seeming infant of a day.

He who a little child began

The life divine to show to man,

Proclaims from heaven the message free,

|Let little children come to me.|

We bring them, Lord, and with the sign

Of cleansing water name them thine:

Their souls with saving grace endow,

Baptize them with thy Spirit now.

O give thy angels charge, good Lord,

Them safely in thy way to guard;

Thy blessing on their lives command,

And write their names upon thy hand.

O Thou who by an infant's tongue

Dost hear thy perfect glory sung,

May these, with all the heavenly host,

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
