What can my poverty bestow,
When all the worlds are thine?
The partners of thy grace;
Before thy Father's face.
And visited and eheer'd;
My Saviour's voice is heard.
We in thy poor would see; () let us rather beg our bread
Than keep it back from thee.

From the deceitful paths of sin.
To seek redeeming grace.
