Blessed Savior [Holy Father], who hast taught me

Representative Text

1 Blessed Saviour, who hast taught me
I should live to thee alone,
All these years thy hand hath brought me,
Since I first was made thine own.
At the font my vows were spoken
By my parents in the Lord:
That my vows shall be unbroken,
At the altar I record.

2 I would trust in thy protecting,
Wholly rest upon thine arm;
Follow wholly thy directing,
O my only guard from harm!
Meet me now with thy salvation
In thy Church’s ordered way;
Let me feel thy confirmation
In thy truth and fear today; A-men.

3 So that, faith and firmness gaining,
Hope in danger, joy in grief,
Now and evermore remaining
Steadfast in the true belief,
Resting in my Saviour’s merit,
Strengthened with the Spirit’s strength,
With thy Church I may inherit
All my Father’s joy at length.

Amen.
