1Lord, when we bend before Thy throne,
And our confessions pour,
Teach us to feel the sins we own,
And hate what we deplore.
2Our broken spirit pitying see;
And penitence impart;
Then let a kindling glance from Thee
Beam hope upon the heart.
3When our responsive tongues essay
Their grateful hymns to raise,
Grant that our souls may join the lay
And mount to Thee in praise.
4When we disclose our wants in prayer
May we our wills resign;
And not a thought our bosom share
That is not wholly Thine.
5Let faith each meek petition fill
And waft it to the skies,
And teach our hearts ’tis goodness still
That grants it or denies. Amen.
