RHYMES AND REASONS
The Fruit of Love
A dedication hymn for my granddaughter

by Greg Asimakoupoulos
April 28, 2017

The fruit of love, this gift of life,
we place, O God, within your care.
To know your grace and guiding hand
in years to come is now our prayer.

This tender child is known by you,
inclined to truth and evil too.
Would you protect this one we love
from sin and harm its whole life through?

A baby's future waits with hope
enveloped with the Spirit's grace.
Tomorrow's promise can be glimpsed
within this infant's tiny face.

With humble joy we recognize
a task that only has begun.
A sacred charge lies in our arms
to cradle faith and pass it on.

We praise you, Father, God alone.
We praise you, Jesus, Son of love.
And to the Spirit, Holy One,
we sing our praise. Amen. Amen.
