ACT OF HUMILITY

O my Saviour! 
 whom am I that Thou shouldst invite me   
to receive Thee for the food of my soul?  
Is it possible that Thou,  
the God of infinite purity,  
shouldst come and dwell in my heart,  
which has been so long the abode of Thine enemy,  
and the sink of so much sin?  
Lord, if Thou wilt,  
Thou canst make me clean.  
Say but the word and my soul shall be healed.  
I come then,   
O my amiable Saviour,   
to receive Thee this morning,  
but I come covered with shame   
and confusion at the sight of my sins,  
but full of confidence in Thy mercy,  
and in the love which Thou dost bear to me.
