738. 7s. M. Campbell's Coll. Prayer for Children.
1 God of mercy, hear our prayer For the children thou hast given; Let them all thy blessings share -- Grace on earth and bliss in heaven.
2 In the morning of their days May their hearts be drawn to thee; Let them learn to lisp thy praise In their earliest infancy.
3 When we see their passions rise, Sinful habits unsubdued, Then to thee we lift our eyes, That their hearts may be renewed.
4 For this mercy, Lord, we cry; Bend thine ever-gracious ear; While on thee our souls rely, Hear our prayer -- in mercy hear.
