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.
