We Humbly Thank Thee Gracious Lord


We humbly thank thee gracious Lord,
Thy blessed name we praise;
We praise thee for thy holy word
And every means of grace.

O, may the word which we have heard!
Fill us with holy zeal,
And may our slothful minds be stir’d
To seek and do thy will.

With faith and love fill every mind,
With reverence and fear,
Cause us to seek until we find
Thy spirit with us here.

Extend to us, thy gracious hands,
Bless us with heavenly grace–
So shall we live to thy commands,
And walk in all thy ways.

Grant us thy blessing from above;
Dear Lord, before we part,
So shall we know that thou art love,
And feel thy grace at heart.
