1 Gracious God, my sins forgive;
Thy Spirit now impart;
Then shall I in thee believe,
With all my loving heart:
Always unto Jesus look--
Him in heavenly glory see,
Who to save me undertook,
And ever prays for me.
2 Grace, in answer to his prayer,
Fullness of grace bestow;
That I may with zealous care
Perform thy will below;
Rooted in humility,
Still in every state resigned--
Plant, Almighty Lord, in me,
A meek and lowly mind.
3 Poor and vile in my own eyes,
With self-abasing shame,
Still I would myself despise,
And magnify thy name.
Thee let every creature bless;
Praise alone to God be given:
God alone deserves the praise
Of all in earth and heaven.
