1 Can such poor feeble worms as we
Praise and adore our Savior's name?
Or bring a tribute Lord to thee?
Or half thy power and love proclaim?
2 We stand amazed,when we behold
Thy glory and thy beauty Lord!
Thy love and grace can ne'er be told,
Which thou to mortals dost afford.
3 Yet Lord, we would attempt thy praise,
We would exalt thy holy name;
Lord, we would walk in thy sweet ways;
And sing, and tell thy wondrous fame.
4 Fain would our souls mount up to thee,
And feast forever on thy love;
And praise the sacred deity,
As angels do that dwell above.
The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791
