1 Sing with humble hearts your praises
for our Savior’s boundless grace;
pay due homage to Christ Jesus,
come with thanks before his face.
Praise him for his death and bleeding,
all our happiness lies there;
praise him for his gracious leading,
praise your faithful Shepherd’s care.
2 Praise for ev'ry scene distressing,
praise for all he did endure.
Praise for ev'ry gift and blessing
which his griefs for us procure.
In this ransomed congregation
shall his death our theme remain,
till he comes with full salvation,
Lord of glory, Lamb once slain.
3 Christ, to purchase our salvation,
did assume humanity;
for Lord Jesus' bitter passion
may we ever thankful be.
Filled with awe and humbly bowing,
at his feet we prostrate fall,
gratefully this truth avowing,
that Christ is our all in all.
