    Verse 1
    Our great Captain and our Saviour
    These children we give to Thee;
    Pray, make them fit for Thy service;
    Heirs of life these children are.

    Verse 2
    Thou the beauty of the Father
    Make these little ones like Thee,
    Create them in Thy own image
    Prepared for Thy courts above.

    Verse 3
    Make them valiant warriors for Thee,
    Soldiers brave and strong we pray,
    Strong to vanquish hosts of satan
    And to overcome the world.

    Verse 4
    Let Thy words like coals of fire
    In the mouth of Thy children
    Burn sin totally to ashes
    That our bodies be made whole.

    Verse 5
    Keep them all for Thy glorious work
    And that spotless they may be;
    Teach them all how to bear the cross
    Each day they live here on earth.

    Verse 6
    Blessed be the plan of salvation
    For the good of these Thy youths;
    Deliver them, lead them, watch them
    And at last, do save their souls.
