Hymn Monday - "Lord, When We Bend Before Thy Throne"

Today's hymn, "Lord, When We Bend Before Thy Throne" (#22)  is from "The Lutheran Hymnal", (c) 1941 by Concordia Publishing House.

"Lord, when we bend before Thy throne And our confessions pour,
Teach us to feel the sins we own And hate what we deplore.

Our broken spirit pitying see, True penitence impart;
Then let a kindling glance from Thee Beam hope upon the heart.

When we disclose our wants in prayer, May we our wills resign
And not a thought our bosom share That is not wholly Thine

May faith each meek petition fill And waft it to the skies;
And teach our hearts 'tis goodness still That grants it or denies."

Jesus Juva,
Soli Deo Gloria
