A Humble Plea


Gracious God of hope and love
Help us fix our gaze on Thee
We are prone to dredge the droves
Of what eye alone can see

Tender Shepherd of the flock
Help us hear Thy voice of old
For your Word alone unlocks
The door that leads to Thy fold

Faithful Father to us all
Satisfy us with Your grace
Help us, hold us lest we fall
Or wander from Your embrace

Perfect Pastor of our prayer
Shape from this, a humble plea
Sure defense against the snare
That would lure the heart from Thee

Sacred Savior of mankind
Lord-God of Heaven and earth
Help us all to seek and find
Through Thy love alone, our worth
