1 O Lamb of God most lowly,
All free from spot or stain,
O help us now to serve Thee
And sing Thy praise again!

2 O Lamb of God most holy,
So great, and yet so meek!
May we, when pride allures us,
Thy lowly spirit seek.

3 O Lamb of God most gentle,
So kind and good and true!
May we, when passion tempts us,
Thy gentleness pursue.

4 O Lamb of God most lovely!
To Thee our faith would flee;
Reveal to us Thy beauty
And win our hearts to Thee.
