     6 For the LORD hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God. 7 For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee. 8 In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer. 9 For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee. 10 For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.(KJV)

1. Our Lord and God, oh, bless this day 
And hear us, we implore Thee; 
None of Thy children turn away 
Who now appear before Thee. 
We come before Thy face 
And pray: Let Thy rich grace 
Descend from heaven above 
In all Thy wondrous love 
And keep us by Thy Spirit. 

2. Oh, bless Thy Word to all the young; 
Let them, Thy truth possessing, 
Bear witness true with heart and tongue, 
Their faith and ours confessing. 
From mother’s arms Thy grace 
With love did them embrace; 
Baptized into Thy name, 
As Thine Thou didst them claim. 
O Lord, as Thine now own them! 

3. When they their vows today renew, 
Accept them with Thy favor; 
And when they promise to be true, 
May they forget it never! 
But they are weak and frail 
When Satan’s hosts assail; 
Oh, arm them with Thy might 
And grant that in the fight 
They unto death be faithful! 

4. And when they leave their childhood home, 
When Satan comes alluring, 
May their baptismal grace become 
A refuge reassuring! 
Blest he who then can say: 
“God’s covenant stands for aye.” 
He ne’er shall be undone 
Who trusts in God alone– 
God is his mighty Father!
