1 Lord, we come before Thee now;
At Thy feet we humbly bow;
O do not our suit disdain:
Shall we seek Thee, Lord, in vain?
2 Lord, on Thee, our souls depend;
In compassion, now descend;
Fill our hearts with Thy rich grace,
Tune our lips to sing Thy praise.
3 Send some message from Thy Word,
That may joy and peace afford;
Let Thy Spirit now impart
Full salvation to each heart.

Madan reduced it to 6 stanzas of 4 lines, and as such it was given in his Psalms & Hymns of that year, No. 121. From this arrangement of the hymn most modern editors have taken their text.
