|131 (2)||Psalm 131 Version 2||7 7. 7 7|
|LORD, if Thou Thy grace impart,
Poor in spirit, meek in heart,
I shall as my Master be,
Rooted in humility.
|2||From the time that Thee I know,
Nothing shall I seek below,
Aim at nothing great or high,
Lowly both in heart and eye.
|3||Simple, teachable, and mild,
Awed into a little child;
Pleased with all the Lord provides,
Weaned from all the world besides.
|4||Father, fix my soul on Thee;
Every evil let me flee;
Nothing want, beneath, above,
Happy only in Thy love!
|5||O that all might seek and find
Every good in Jesus joined!
Him let Zion still adore,
Trust Him, praise Him evermore!
|Charles Wesley, 1707-88|
