1 Lord, we humbly bow before Thee,
In thy courts on this Thy day;
Help us rightly to adore Thee,
Worthily to praise and pray:
Worldly cares and thoughts dispelling,
In our hearts Thy Spirit dwelling;
Teach us meekly to obey,
Learn Thy will, and keep Thy way.
2 Hear, O Lord, our full confession,
When to Thee we lift our cry;
Pardon speak for each transgression;
To our suppliant soul draw nigh:
Thy pure word our hearts directing,
Thy good grace our steps protecting;
Look on us with pitying eye,
All we need, O Lord, supply.
