Hymn/Song Information

Lord if thou thy grace impart Poor in spirit meek




Lord, if thou thy grace impart,
Poor in spirit, meek in heart,
I shall as my Master be
Rooted in humility.


From the time that thee I know,
Nothing shall I seek below,
Aim at nothing great or high,
Lowly both my heart and eye.


Simple, teachable, and mild,
Awed into a little child,
Quiet now without my food,
Weaned from every creature-good.


Father, fix my soul on Thee ;
Every evil let me flee ;
Nothing want, beneath, above,
Happy in Thy precious love.


O that all might seek and find
Every good in Jesus joined!
Him let Israel still adore,
Trust him, praise him evermore.


---Alternative verses---


Lord, if thou thy grace impart,
Poor in spirit, meek in heart,
We shall as our Master, be
Clothed with true humility.


Since thy love and grace we know,
May we rise from things below,
Seek not to be great or high,
Lowly both in heart and eye.


Thankful, teachable, and kind,
Always to thy will resigned;
Pleased with what thy love provides,
Weaned all the world besides.


Simple, teachable, and mild,
Changed into a little child;
Pleased with all the Lord provides,
Weaned from all the world besides.
