1 On thee, O God of purity,
I wait for hallowing grace;
None without holiness shall see
The glories of thy face;
In souls unholy, and unclean,
Thou never canst delight;
Nor shall they, while unsaved from sins,
Appear before thy sight.
2 But as for me, with humble fear,
I will approach thy gate;
Though most unworthy to draw near,
Or in thy courts to wait;
I trust in thine unbounded grace,
To all so freely given;
And worship toward thy holy place,
And lift my soul to heaven.
3 Lead me in all thy righteous ways,
Nor suffer me to slide;
Point out the path before my face,
My God be thou my guide!
O may I ne'er to evil yield,
Defended from above,
And kept, and covered with the shield
Of thine Almighty love.
