Humble Thyself to Walk with God

Humble-thyself

 

If thou would’st have the dear Saviour from heaven
Walk by thy side from the morn till the even,
There is a rule that each day you must follow,
Humble thyself to walk with God.

Humble thyself and the Lord will draw near thee,
Humble thyself and His presence shall cheer thee;
He will not walk with the proud or the scornful,
Humble thyself to walk with God.

Just as the Lord in the world’s early ages
Walked and communed with the prophets and sages,
He will come now if you meet the conditions,
Humble thyself to walk with God.

Just as the stream finds a bed that is lowly,
So Jesus walks with the pure and the holy;
Cast out thy pride, and in heartfelt contrition,
Humble thyself to walk with God.
