Before Thy Throne, O God, We Kneel;
Give Us A Conscience Quick To Feel,
A Ready Mind To Understand
The Meaning Of Thy Chastening Hand;
Whatever The Pain And Shame May Be,
Bring Us, O Father, Nearer Thee.

Search Out Our Hearts And Make Us True,
Wishful To Give To All Their Due;
From Love Of Pleasure, Lust Of Gold,
From Sins Which Make The Heart Grow Cold,
Wean Us And Train Us With Thy Rod;
Teach Us To Know Our Faults, O God.

For Sins Of Heedless Word And Deed,
For Pride Ambitious To Succeed;
For Crafty Trade And Subtle Snare
To Catch The Simple Unaware;
For Lives Bereft Of Purpose High,
Forgive, Forgive, O Lord, We Cry.

Let The Fierce Fires, Which Burn And Try,
Our Inmost Spirits Purify:
Consume The Ill; Purge Out The Shame;
O God! Be With Us In The Flame;
A New-Born People May We Rise,
More Pure, More True, More Nobly Wise.
