1 How shall I meet my Savior?
How shall I truly welcome thee?
What manner of behavior
is by thy love required of me?
I wait for thy salvation;
grant me, O Lord, thy Spirit’s light;
and may my preparation
be well accepted in thy sight.
2 While with her sweetest flowers
thy waiting Zion strews thy way,
I’ll raise with all my powers,
Savior, to thee a grateful lay;
to thee, the King of glory,
my heart will tune a song divine
and make thy love’s bright story
through me in living witness shine.
