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.
