Johann A. Freylinghausen


O Lord, we sing Thy great humility:
By Thee redeemed, our all we bring to Thee.
That we might live
Thou didst on Calvary give
Thy life for our salvation.
Oh great humiliation!

Before all worlds Thou art, who yet didst deign
To take our flesh and bow to mortal pain.
Thee crucified
Thy guilty foes deride:
O Lord, for their salvation
Was Thy humiliation!

No more let pride in us, O Jesu! dwell,
Or vainly shall our praise Thy sorrows tell.
May all like Thee
Now meek and lowly be:
So bless our contemplation
Of Thy humiliation.
