Offspring of a Virgin's womb,
Day by day we magnify Thee,
Jesu, high in glory,
Lend a listening ear;
Children's praises hear.
Though Thou art so holy,
Thou will stoop to listen
We are little children,
Saviour, guide and keep us
Save us, Lord, from sinning,
Watch us day by day;
Take our sins away.
Then when Jesus calls us
To our heavenly home, We would gladly answer,
"Saviour! Lord! we come!"
Lobd Jesus, God and Man,
We pray for childlike hearts,
We pray for simple faith,
On friends around us here O let Thy blessing fall, We pray for grace to love them well, But Thee beyond them all.
O joy to Uve for Thee! O joy in Thee to die! O very joy of joys to see Thy face eternally!
Lord Jesus, God and Man,
God of mercy, throned on high,
Hear, O hear, our feeble cry,
Guide, O guide, our wandering feet.
Young and erring travellers, we
Scarcely fear the stormy sea,
Jesu, lover of the young,
Cleanse us with Thy blood divine; Ere the tide of sin grow strong,
Save us, keep us, make us Thine.
Let us ever hear Thy voice,
Saints and angels will rejoice,
Saviour, give us faith, and pour
Hope, till time shall be no more,
Love, while endless ages roll. Amen.
IIEab Thy children, gentle Jesus!
While we breathe our evening prayer; Save us from all harm and danger,
Take us 'neath Thy sheltering care.
Save us from the wiles of Satan,
Sweetly may bright guardian angels
Gentle Jesus! look in pity
From Thy great white throne above, All the night Thy heart is wakeful,
Ever Thou Thine own dost love.
Shades of even fast are falling,
Day is fading into gloom; When the shades of death fall round us,
Lead Thine exiled children home.
Gentle Jesus! hear Thy children
When They sing their hymns to Thee,
Who, with Father and with Spirit,

O Spibit of the living God!
In all Thy plenitude of grace, Where'er the foot of man hath trod,
Descend on our apostate race.
Give tongues of fire and hearts of love
Give power and unction from above
Be darkness, at Thy coming, light;
Confusion, order in Thy path; Souls without strength inspire with might,
Bid mercy triumph over wrath.
O Spirit of the Lord! prepare
All the round earth her God to meet;
Breathe Thou abroad like morning air,
Baptize the nations far and nigh,
The Name of Jesus glorify,
Till every kindred call Him Lord.
