Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840
1. Behold thy sons and daughters, Lord,
On whom we lay our hands -
They have fulfilled the gospel word,
And bowed to thy commands.
2. O now send forth the heavenly dove,
And overwhelm their souls
With peace and joy and perfect love,
As lambs within thy fold.
3. Seal them by thine own spirit's power,
Which purifies from sin;
And may they find from this good hour,
They are adopted in.
4. Strengthen their faith, confirm their hope,
And guide them in the way -
With comfort bear their spirits up,
Until the perfect day.
