My soul before thy Maker bow

My soul before thy Maker bow

Published in 8 hymnals

Representative Text

1 My soul, before thy Maker bow;
His wondrous works admire,
Till rev'rence and religious awe
Thine inmost thoughts inspire.

2 With humble trust dismiss thy cares,
And on his love depend;
Leave him to manage thine affairs,
To him thyself commend.

3 Let high esteem affection raise;
Devotion warm thy breast;
Let thankful love excite thy praise;
In him alone be blest.

4 To him thy solemn homage pay;
His constant aid implore;
Give thanks for mercies ev'ry day,
And thus prepare for more.
