5 Jesus, be Thou our constant Guide:

Then, when the word is given,
Bid Jordan's narrow stream divide,
And bring us safe to heaven. Amen.

4 Peace in our hearts, our evil thoughts assuaging,

Peace in Thy Church, where brothers are engaging,
Peace when the world its busy war is waging;

Calm Thy foes raging.
5 Grant us Thy help till backward they are driven;

Grant them Thy truth, that they may be forgiven;
Grant peace on earth, and after we have striven,
Peace in Thy heaven. Amen.

Latin Hymn, 8th Cent. Tr. Philip PUSEY, et al.

(d=104) Sav-iour, Who Thy flock art feed- ing. With the shep-herd's kind-est care,

All the fee - ble gen - tly lead-ing, While the lambs Thy bo- som share; A-men.

2 Now, these little ones receiving, Let Thy tenderness, so loving,

Fold them in Thy gracious arm; Keep them through life's dangerous way. There, we know, Thy word believing, 4 Then, within Thy fold eternal, Only there secure from harm.

Let them find a resting-place; 3 Never, from Thy pasture roving, Feed in pastures ever vernal, Let them be the lion's prey;

Drink the rivers of Thy grace. Amen.

2 To thee, O God, Whose face

Their spirits still behold,
We bring them, praying that Thy grace

May keep, Thine arms enfold.

3 And as this water falls

On each unconscious brow,
Thy Holy Spirit grant, Lord,
To keep them pure as now. Amen.

4 When the holy vow is made,

When the hands are on them laid,
Come, in this most solemn hour,
With Thy sevenfold gifts of power,
Come, Thou blessed Spirit, come
Make each heart Thy happy home. Amen.

2 When the world's sharp strife is nigh,

When they hear the battle-cry,
When they rush into the fight,
Knowing not temptation's might;

These Thy children, Lord, defend;
To their zeal Thy wisdom lend.

4 When the vows that they have made,

When the prayers that they have prayed,
Shall be fading from their hearts;
When their first warm faith departs;

These Thy children, Lord, defend;
Keep them faithful to the end.

3 When their hearts are lifted high

With success or victory,
When they feel the conqueror's pride;
Lest they grow self-satisfied,

These Thy children, Lord, defend;
Teach their souls to Thee to bend.

5 Through life's conflict guard us all,

Or if wounded some should fall
Ere the victory be won,
For the sake of Christ, Thy Son,

These Thy children, Lord, defend;
And in death Thy comfort lend.

Amen.
