A beautiful hymn praising God for the gift of children.
Note especially these verses:
5. O wife! the Lord has chosen you
That from your womb shall life anew
Increase the Church and build it
This wondrous work forever mounts,
The mighty word His lips pronounce:
What here you see, shall yield it
Sons and daughters
To the waters
Finding grace and good vocation.
6. Be of good cheer, for this decree
Is not a human father's plea:
Our Heav'nly Father gave it,
Who loves us through the coming days
And who, when grief upon us weighs,
Will give us strength to brave it;
As we're doing
Wise and happy children giving.
