358. Lamb of God, We Fall before Thee

1 Lamb of God, we fall before Thee,
Humbly trusting in Thy Cross.
That alone be all our glory;
All things else are only dross.

2 Thee we own a perfect Savior,
Only Source of all that’s good.
Ev'ry grace and ev'ry favor
Comes to us thro' Jesus’ blood.

3 Jesus gives us true repentance
By His Spirit sent from heav’n;
Whispers this transporting sentence,
"Son, thy sins are all forgiv’n."

4 Faith He grants us to believe it,
Grateful hearts His love to prize;
Want we wisdom? He must give it,
Hearing ears and seeing eyes.

5 Jesus gives us pure affections,
Wills to do what He requires,
Makes us follow His directions,
And what He commands, inspires.

6 All our prayers and all our praises,
Rightly offered in His name--
He that dictates them is Jesus;
He that answers is the same.

Amen.
