During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

With deep humility, O Lord

With deep humility, O Lord

Author: George H. Trabert
Tune: BELMONT (Gardiner)
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 With deep humility, O Lord,
We come before Thy face;
We are unworthy, but Thy Word
Assures to us Thy grace.

2 This Sacrament Thou hast prepared,
In which Thy love shins forth,
It shows how richly Thou hast cared
For Thy redeemed on earth.

3 Here we receive, through bread and wine,
Thy body and Thy blood,
We are refreshed by grace divine
With this most precious food.

4 This is a wondrous mystery,
But we believe Thy Word;
All who confess their sins will see
How Thou dost life afford.
