1 While we lowly bow before Thee,
Wilt Thou, gracious Saviour, hear?
We are poor and needy sinners,
Full of doubt and full of fear;
Gracious Saviour, Gracious Saviour,
Make us humble and sincere.

2 Fill us with Thy Holy Spirit;
Sanctify us by Thy grace;
Oh, incline us more to love Thee,
And in dust our souls abase.
Hear us, Saviour, Hear us, Saviour,
And unveil Thy glorious face.

3 None in vain did ever ask Thee
For the Spirit of Thy love;
Hear us then, dear Saviour, hear us;
Grant an answer from above;
Blessèd Saviour, Blessèd Saviour,
Hear, and answer from above.

Amen.
