Great King in Zion, Lord of all,
We bow before Thy face!
With grief we own our follies past,
And seek Thy pardoning grace.

While we invoke Thine awful name
In this appointed rite,
May love divine inspire our songs,
And fill our souls with light.

Near to Thy seat would we approach,
And find acceptance there.
Jesus, by Thy own sacrifice,
Present our ardent prayer.

A grateful tribute, Lord, inspire,
For all Thy mercies past;
Let goodness crown each future day,
While months and years shall last.

Before Thy throne, great God, we bring
Our highly-favored land;
Be Thou our never-failing friend,
And guide us by Thy hand.
