Lord, When We Bend Before Thy Throne
Joseph Dacre Carlyle, 1802
|Lord, when we bend before Thy throne|
And our confessions pour,
Teach us to feel the sins we own
And hate what we deplore.
2. Our broken spirit pitying see,
3. When our responsive tongues essay
|4. Then on Thy glories while we dwell,|
Thy mercies we'll review
Till love divine transported tell
Our God's our Father, too.
5. When we disclose our wants in prayer,
6. May faith each meek petition fill
