7. M.

BOWRING. Humble Worship 1 Wuen before thy throne we kneel,

Filled with awe and holy fear,
Teach us, o our God! to feel

All thy sacred presence near. 2 Check each proud and wandering thought

When on thy great name we call;
Man is nought - is less than nought :

Thou, our God, art all in all. 3 Weak, imperfect creatures, we

In this vale of darkness dwell;
Yet presume to look to thee,

'Midst thy light ineffable.
4 0, receive the praise that dares

Seek thy heaven-exalted throne;
Bless our offerings, hear our pray’rs,

Infinite and Holy One!

1 Come, thou Almighty King !
Help us thy name to sing ;

Help us to praise !
Father all glorious,
O'er all victorious,
Come and reign over us,
Ancient of days !
