Prayer Songs Series - "Humbly Lord, We Worship You"

Yesterday, I decided to try-out recording a few songs, so I'll be uploading them here over the next few days. I don't consider myself an all-star at piano/singing by any means, but I thought I would share with you nevertheless a way that I enjoy to pray.

Sing along =p Today's song is "Humbly Lord, We Worship You"

Humbly Lord, we worship You
Our Eternal King
You who died to give us life
Hear us as we sing (to ref.)

(Refrain) Jesus, God and Lord of all
Come to us, we pray
Thus united in Your love
May we live this day

Jesus, Lord, we offer you
every act this day.
May we live our love for You
and your will obey (to ref.)

Lord, forgive us all our faults
Others we forgive
May we strive with all our souls
Christian lives to live (to ref.)

May we love You in each soul,
and each soul in You.
One in our eternal goal
One in all we do (to refrain).

I love this hymn! I just heard it in church this past Sunday and googled it to find the lyrics. I came across your blog and just listened to you sing it so beautifully.

Thank you!

You've a beautiful voice, but mostly a beautiful spirit. Your faith comes through in your singing and playing.

Thank you for posting this. It sounds great, and I'm going to play it for my music classes at school. I like that it is traditional. It will be a good springboard into Adoro Te Devote. Please post more, if you have time! God bless!

Lovely, Ryan ! We sang this in church this past sunday and I did a search on, "come to us we pray thus united in your love" and your link was the third one down. What a wonderful prayer. I have bookmarked your version and will hear it often. Thanks for sharing, Ryan. God be with you.
