O GOD with humble heart and voice
We now approach thy throne,
Released from every earthly thought
To worship thee alone.
Thy all-sustaining hand has kept
Us safe since morning light,
And now we thy protection ask
To guard us through the night.
O may our thankful songs to thee
Like grateful incense rise,
And mingle with the praises which
Are sung above the skies.
But when we lift the voice in prayer
With reverential fear,
Bow down from out thy high abode
And condescend to hear;
For O we come as children come,
And ask thee to supply
Our hungry souls with living food
Which thou wilt ne'er deny.
But as the gentle dews descend,
So may thy grace be given,
To cheer us in thy earthly courts
While on our way to heaven.
O may our hearts all yield to thee;
Our stormy passions cease
As fall the waters of the deep
When thou commandest peace.
And when all earthly scenes shall fade
O may we joyful stand
To worship with the ransomed throng
Who dwell at thy right hand.
