1 Blessed Saviour, at thy altar
Humbly would we bow today;
Oh, forgive us, now accept us,
Hear, oh, hear us as we pray.
Hear us now, hear us now,
Heav’nly Father, hear us now;
Send thy blessed Holy Spirit
While we in thy presence bow.
2 Oh, how sweet the thought of mercy
Coming to a heart so cold!
Pleading only Jesus’ merit,
Lead, oh, lead us to thy fold. [Refrain]
3 Heav’nly Father, now accept us,
Hear us as we bow today;
Holy Spirit, brood thou o’er us,
Guide us thro’ our earthly stay. [Refrain]
4 Sinful, pleading, trusting only
In a love so full and free,
Come we to a Saviour, waiting
With his grace to help e’en me. [Refrain]Source: Songs of Love and Praise No. 4 #142
