1036. Humility of Heart

1 There is a grace few mortals find,
A star all heaven loves to see;
It is a meek and lowly mind,
The gem of pure humility.

No ornament on earth so rare,
No jewel in all heaven’s mart,
Can beautify a soul so fair
As deep humility of heart.

2 O God, hath e’er Thy balance weighed
A jewel of such priceless worth
As that pure life all humbly laid
Before the blessed Lord of earth? [Refrain]

3 Within my hidden man, dear Lord,
That glorious ornament bestow,
The sweetest gift in all Thy Word—
O Father, keep me meek and low. [Refrain]

4 All earthly crowns shall turn to mold,
All glitt’ring pride and vanity;
But meekness decks the soul with gold
That shines through all eternity. [Refrain]
