We bow to thee, O Lord on high

Representative Text

1 We bow to thee, O Lord, on high;
To thee our hearts incline;
Submitting to thy word, we pray,
Thy will be done, not mine.

Lord, as this solemn rite we keep,
With joy we worship thee;
May we with humble hearts, O Lord,
Thy faithful servants be.

2 The highest station here on earth
Is at our Saviour's feet;
'Tis there we learn our Master's will,
We find the mercy seat. [Refrain]

3 Our Saviour, tho' our Master, Lord,
In true humility.
By action taught that we might see
The great must servants be. [Refrain]

4 A pattern he did kindly give
To His disciples true:
He washed their feet, then said to them,
"Do as I've done to you." [Refrain]

5 Then afterwards he said to them,
"Go forth (I go with you),
And teach all nations ev'rything
I've commanded you to do." [Refrain]

6 Then teach us, Lord, to do thy will,
Whatever that may be:
May thy free grace attend us here,
And in eternity. [Refrain]
