Hymn/Song Information

O Lord when we the path retrace Which Thou on




O Lord, when we the path retrace
Which Thou on earth hast trod,
To man Thy wondrous love and grace,
Thy faithfulness to God.


Thy love to man, so sorely tried,
Proved stronger than the grave;
The very spear that pierced Thy side
Drew forth the blood to save.


Faithful amidst unfaithfulness,
Midst darkness only light,
Thou didst Thy Fatherís Name confess,
And in His will delight.


Unmoved by Satanís subtle wiles,
By suffering, shame, and loss;
Thy path, uncheered by earthly smiles,
Led only to the Cross.


O Lord, with sorrow and with shame,
Before thee we confess,
How little we, who bear Thy Name,
Thy mind, Thy ways express.


Gives us Thy meek, Thy lowly mind;
We would obedient be;
And all our rest and pleasure find
In learning, Lord, of Thee.


---Alternative verses---


O Lord, with sorrow and with shame,
We meekly would confess,
How little we, who bear Thy Name,
Thy mind, Thy ways express.


Gives us Thy meek, Thy lowly mind;
We would obedient be;
And all our rest and pleasure find
In fellowship with Thee.


We wonder at Thy lowly mind,
And fain would like Thee be,
And all our rest and pleasure find
In learning, Lord, of Thee.
