504. Holy offerings, rich and rare

7.7.7.7.8.8.8.8

Holy Offerings:

Richard Redhead (1820-1901), 1870

Refrain

John S. B. Monsell, 1867;

abr.

Holy offerings, rich and rare,

Offerings of praise and prayer,

Purer life and purpose high,

Clasped hands, uplifted eye,

Lowly acts of adoration

To the God of our salvation;

On his altar laid, we leave them.

Christ, present them! God, receive them!

459

Homage of each humble heart,

Ere we from thy house depart;

Worship fervent, deep and high,

Adoration, ecstasy;

All that childlike love can render

Of devotion true and tender;

On thine altar laid, we leave them:

To the Father, and the Son,

And the Spirit, Three in One,

Though our mortal weakness raise

Offerings of imperfect praise,

Yet with hearts bowed down most lowly,

Crying, Holy! Holy! Holy!

On thine altar laid, we leave them:

Amen.
