Behold we come, dear Lord, to Thee,
And bow be­fore Thy throne;
We come to of­fer on our knee
Our vows to Thee alone.

Whate’er we have, whate’er we are,
Thy boun­ty free­ly gave;
Thou dost here in mer­cy spare,
And wilt here­af­ter save.

Come then, my soul, bring all thy pow­ers,
And grieve thou hast no more;
Bring every day thy choic­est hours,
And thy great God ad­ore.

But, above all, pre­pare thy heart,
On this His own blest day;
In its sweet task to bear thy part,
And sing, and love, and pray.
