PRAYER FOR THE LOWLY HEART




Let thy grace, Lord, make me lowly;
Humble all my swelling pride:
Fallen, guilty, and unholy,
Greatness from my eyes I'll hide:


I'll forbid my vain aspiring,
Nor at earthly honours aim;
No ambitious heights desiring,
Far above my humble claim.


Weaned from earth's vexatious pleasures,
In thy love I'll seek for mine;
Placed in heaven my nobler treasures,
Earth I quietly resign.


Israel, thus the world despising,
On the Lord alone rely;
Then, from him thy joys arising,
Like himself shall never die.
