Worship the Lord in the Beauty of Holiness

Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness;
Bow down in reverence, God’s glory proclaim;
Gold of obedience and incense of lowliness
Bring now, adoring the Lord’s holy name.

Low at his feet lay thy burden of carefulness;
High on his heart Jesus bears it for thee,
Comforts thy sorrows and answers thy prayerfulness,
Guiding thy steps as may best for thee be.

Fear not to enter God’s courts in the slenderness
Of the poor wealth thou’s wouldst reckon as thine;
Truth in its beauty and love in its tenderness:
These are the offerings to lay on his shrine.

These, though we bring them in trembling and fearfulness,
God will accept for the name that is dear;
Mornings of joy give for evenings of tearfulness,
Trust for our trembling and hope for our fear.

Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness;
Bow down in reverence, God’s glory proclaim;
Gold of obedience and incense of lowliness
Bring now, adoring the Lord’s holy name.

By John Samuel Bewley Monsell
