390. L. M. Scott. |Two men went up into the temple to pray.|
1 The uplifted eye, and bended knee,
Are but vain homage, Lord, to thee;
In vain our lips thy praise prolong,
The heart a stranger to the song.
2 The pure, the humble, contrite mind,
Sincere, and to thy will resigned,
To thee a nobler offering yields,
Than Sheba's groves, or Sharon's fields.
3 Love God and man -- this great command,
Doth on eternal pillars stand;
This did thine ancient prophets teach,
And this thy Well-Beloved preach.
