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 Savior, gracious Savior,
Make us humble and sincere.

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, Savior, hear us, Savior,
And unveil Thy glorious face.

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