Gentiles by nature, we belong
To the wild olive wood;

Rom. 11:16,17

Gentiles by nature, we belong
   To the wild olive wood;
Grace took us from the barren tree,
   And grafts us in the good.

With the same blessings grace endows
   The Gentile and the Jew;
If pure and holy be the root,
   Such are the branches too.

Then let the children of the saints
   Be dedicate to God,
Pour out thy Spirit on them, Lord,
   And wash them in thy blood.

Thus to the parents and their seed
   Shall thy salvation come,
And num’rous households meet at last
   In one eternal home.

~ Wesley
