Confirmation.
Father, see Thy suppliant children
Trembling stand before Thy throne,
To confirm the vow of Horeb:
“We will serve the Lord alone.”
Thy command shall be engraven
On the tables of our heart,
Till the heart in death be broken
And the cord of life shall part.
When dark tempests lowering gather
It will be our strength and stay,
It will be our guardian angel
Upon life’s laborious way.
As a sheltering cloud at noon-tide,
As a flaming fire by night,
Through prosperity and sorrow
It will guide our steps aright.
Till we reach the land of promise,
When the toils of earth are past,
Till we sleep the sleep eternal
In the realms of peace at last.
