First Line: How dare I in thy courts appear
Last Line: Help thou mine unbelief!
Subject(s): Faith; Belief; Creed

HOW dare I in thy courts appear,
Or raise to thee my voice!
I only serve thee, Lord, with fear,
With trembling I rejoice.

I have not all forgot thy word,
Nor wholly gone astray;
I follow thee, but oh, my Lord,
So faint, so far away!

That thou wilt pardon and receive
Of sinners even the chief,
Lord, I believe, -- Lord, I believe;
Help thou mine unbelief!
