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.

3  Their watch let angels round him keep
where'er he be, awake, asleep;
thy holy cross now let him bear,
that he crown with saints may wear.
