Forgetting self, to love the other man.
Free every heart from pride and self-reliance,
Our ways of thought inspire with simple grace.
Help us to give and not count the cost.
O wash me more and more from my guild
and cleanse me from my sin. ….
My sacrifice, a contrite spirit.
A humbled, contrite heart you will not spurn.
And I will lead you home.
--- from A Christmas Lullaby
