Full Text

1 Let Thy grace, Lord, make me lowly,
Humble all my swelling pride;
Fallen, guilty, and unholy,
Greatness from mine eyes I'll hide;
I'll forbid my vain aspiring,
Nor at early honors aim,
No ambitious heights desiring
Far above my humble claim.

2 Weaned from earth's delusive pleasures
In Thy love I'll seek for mine;
Placed in heav'n my nobler treasures,
Earth I quietly resign;
Thus the transient world despising,
On the Lord my hopes rely;
Thus my joys from Him arising
Like Himself shall never die.
