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.
