1. 7s. M. Bowring. Humble Worship
1 When 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 O, receive the praise that dares Seek thy heaven-exalted throne; Bless our offerings, hear our pray'rs, Infinite and Holy One!
