Author: John S. B. Monsell, 1811-1875 Hymnal: Hymns for a Pilgrim People #416 (2007) Meter: 188.8.131.52 Hymnal Title: Hymns for a Pilgrim People Lyrics: 1 Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness,
Bow down before Him, His glory proclaim;
with Gold of obedience, and incense of lowliness,
Kneel and adore Him, the Lord is His name.
2 Low at His feet lay thy burden of carefulness,
High on His heart He will bear it for thee;
Comfort thy sorrows, and answer thy prayerfulness,
Guiding thy steps as may best for thee be.
3 Fear not to enter His courts in the slenderness
Of the poor wealth thou wouldst reckon as thine;
Truth in its beauty, and love in its tenderness,
These are the off'rings to lay on His shrine.
Amen. Topics: Adoration and Praise; Blessing; Ecumenism / Interfaith; Epiphany; Giving; Love; Opening of Worship Scripture: Psalm 96:9 Languages: English Tune Title: MONSELL
