Lord, I leave this child with Thee.
His will I do not own.
In his frail hands, the vital choice —
Will he his God disown?
But I can follow him in prayer,
Surround him with my love,
Show him what’s in Thy word, dear Lord,
Point him to heaven above.
Lord, I must leave this child with Thee.
I place him in Thy care,
Knowing Thy Holy Spirit will
Bid him of sin beware.
Trembling, I wait and watch, dear Lord,
Trusting that he will come,
Turning from sin to find in Thee,
Earth’s battles fought and won.
