168 COWPER - as written
to the Cooper book version of this tune
Forgive the song that falls so low
Beneath the gratitude I owe
It means Thy praise, however poor.
An angel's song can do no more.
Great God and wilt Thou condescend
To be my Father and my Friend.
I, a poor child, and Thou so high,
The Lord of earth, and air, and sky.
