Parent of the human family,
claiming each to be your own,
let this act be the beginning
of a life in Christ full-grown.

Grace and strength grant these young parents;
of their call keep them aware;
with your love surround these children,
they your life of joy to share.

As the church we live your praises,
marked for service in your name;
with your Spirit born within us,
we our worlds for Christ reclaim.

And from us, your gathered people,
prayer and praise is offered new;
by your grace we have been strengthened,
greater works in faith to do.
