When before thy throne we kneel,
Filled with awe and holy fear,
Teach us, O our God! to feel
All thy sacred presence near.

Check each proud and wandering thought
When on thy great name we call;
Man is nought-is less than nought:
Thou, our God, art all in all.

Weak, imperfect creatures, we
In this vale of darkness dwell;
Yet presume to look to thee,
‘Midst thy light ineffable.

O, receive the praise that dares
Seek thy heaven-exalted throne;
Bless our offerings, hear our pray’rs,
Infinite and Holy One!
