S oftly the prayer began,

A wesome God, send us a man.

M ake Him to know and love your son,

U ntil a thorough work is done.

E nlighten him so all may see,

L ove flow through him unceasingly.


C hrist we beseech thee now,

H elp this boy to learn,

R ighteousness full and free,

I ncline his heart to burn,

S o he may serve with grace,

T ouching the lives of those,

O nly in purity and love,

P atient with power from above,

H olding the lonely close.

E cho yourself through Chris.

R ighteous Lord, please do this.


R each down and calm this heart.

I nspire him with your peace.

C hasten this boy continually.

H elp all his striving cease.

A lmighty, loving king,

R oll waves of love o'er him,

D irect his soul to sing.


K ind and merciful God,

R each deep and draw her out.

I gnite a fire within her soul,

S o she will want to shout.

T riumph despite her Lord.

I n love reach down and make,

N ew and full impressions, and

E mpower her for your sake.


A lmighty Father God,

B efore your holy throne,

I nfill her with your Spirit Lord,

G ive grace and joy within,

A bility to love all men,

I ncreasing sense of you, and

L oving kindness too.


D ig deep inside this heart,

A llow your power to fill,

V indicate and Justify,

D evoted to your will.


S oftly seal your word,

A ffix it deep inside,

R efine this heart,

A nd fill with you.

H oly Ghost abide.


We offer Lord, these gifts you sent,

Entrusting us to raise,

Each one with only one intent,

That they might learn your ways.


Accept them now we pray,

And hold them in your care,

That we might all one day,

Be reunited there.
