Hymn of Humble Praise

Lord, move from heart to mouth pure praise
For Goodness from Your Hand
Help us to trust love’s higher ways
When we don’t understand

Your mercy ushers from mere seed
Harvest; the farmer’s goal
It provides bread for body’s need
But for the sinner’s soul

…You sent Jesus, Your only Son
A pleading sacrifice
Nailed to the cross, for everyone
Perfection paid sin’s price

Then let the earth ring with love’s song
You died in our place
When we are weak; God, You are strong
You fill our need with grace

As far as east is from the west
God, you remove man’s sin
The fathom of your love so vast
Thought cannot take it in

With honor and obedience
You did Your holy part
Pray we with faith and reverence
Believe with wholly heart

Your gift of grace no one can earn
Thus with our gift of days
Let us, in all we do, return
Love’s hymn of humble praise

Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth;
            Break forth and sing for joy and sing praises. Ps.98:4
