I Bow My Head and Still My Mind
I bow my head and still my mind
In reverence at the music’s start,
With faith that somehow I can find
The spirit present in my heart.
The busy world has left me spent’
A week of cares had drained my cup,
And so I take the sacrament
That Thou, dear Lord, might lift me up.
The broken loaf is more than bread:
The spirit guides my eyes to see
The bread of life, as Thou hast said,
Can fill my aching soul with Thee.
The cup of water is so small
To quench the thirst I feel for Thee!
Yet living water, I recall,
Thy life, Thy words will be for me.
Today I’ve shared in crumb and cup
The symbols of Thy gift so free.
Renewed in heart, I offer up
My life, my will, my all to thee.
