Lyrics

Offertory
Music by John Ness Beck, transcribed by Craig Courtney
Lyrics adapted from Micah 6

With what shall I come before the Lord

And bow myself before God on high?

Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings

Shall I come before Him with yearling calves?

Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams
With ten thousand rivers of oil?

Shall I give Him my firstborn for my transgressions
The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

He has shown you, O man;

He has shown you what is good.

And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justice, and to love kindness
And to walk humbly

Walk humbly with your God.
