Tune: [Humility, thou secret vale]
Published in 5 hymnals
1 Humility, thou secret vale,
Unknown to proud in heart;
Where show’rs of blessing never fail,
And glories ne’er depart.
Oh, make thy blest abode with me,
Thou angel of the sky;
If I may ever dwell with thee,
My soul shall never die.
2 Humility, how pure thy place!
Thou seat of holiness!
Thou door of entrance into grace
And everlasting bliss! [Refrain]
3 Humility, how calm the breast
That knows thy peace sublime!
Within thy courts our perfect rest
Grows sweeter all the time. [Refrain]
4 Humility, thou shoreless sea
Of perfect love so deep!
Thy crystal waters cover me,
My helpless soul to keep. [Refrain]
