Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me. Psalm 131:1
Words: Isaac Watts, The Psalms of David 1719.
Humility and submission.
Music: Eagley James Walch, 1860 (🔊 pdf nwc).
If you know where to get a good photo of Walch (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels), would you ?
Is there ambition in my heart?
Search, gracious God, and see;
Or do I act a haughty part?
Lord, I appeal to Thee.
I charge my thoughts, be humble still,
And all my carriage mild,
Content, my Father, with Thy will,
And quiet as a child.
The patient soul, the lowly mind,
Shall have a large reward:
Let saints in sorrow lie resigned,
And trust a faithful Lord.
