Before his footstool humbly bow,
And pour our fervent prayer.

3 Come, let us seal, without delay,
The covenant of his grace;
Nor shall the years of distant life
Its memory efface.

4 Thus may our rising offspring haste
To seek their fathers' God;
Nor e'er forsake the happy path
Their fathers' feet have trod.
