Lord Jesus Christ, our Lord most dear
1 Lord Jesus Christ, our Lord most dear,
as thou wast once an infant here,
so give this child of thine, we pray,
thy grace and blessing day by day.
O holy Jesus, Lord divine,
we pray thee guard this child of thine.
2 As in thy heavenly kingdom, Lord,
all things obey thy sacred word,
do thou thy mighty succor give,
and shield this child by morn and eve. [Refrain]
3 Their watch let angels round him keep,
where'er he be, awake, asleep;
Thy cross now let him bear
That he thy crown with saints may wear. [Refrain]
