1.  All hail thou day of wondrous grace,

My confirmation day.

When I the steps of God retrace,

Imprinted on my way.

2.  When I was but an infant small,

He pledged his love to me;

He called me with a holy call,

His child and heir to be.

3.  The sacred washing I received,

That cleansed me well from sin;

Of ev’ry guilty stain relieved,

I now have peace within.

4.  From parents kind and teachers true,

By Thee, my God, ordained,

I learned Thy holy will to do,

By faith in Christ sustained.

5.  So now I come before Thy throne,

Thy precious name to bless,

Resolved to serve Thee as Thine own

In truth and holiness.

6.  I consecrate myself to Thee

In body, soul and mind;

Do Thou but help and strengthen me,

Thou Hope of all mankind.

7.  While in this world of sin and strife,

Vouchsafe to me Thy grace

Till I have reached the end of life

And see Thee face to face.
