     1 And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him. 2 And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the dropsy. 3 And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day? 4 And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed him, and let him go; 5 And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day? 6 And they could not answer him again to these things.

     7 And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them, 8 When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him; 9 And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room. 10 But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee. 11 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.(KJV)

1. Lord, we come before Thee now, 
At Thy feet we humbly bow: 
Oh, do not our suit disdain! 
Shall we seek Thee, Lord, in vain? 

2. Lord, on Thee our souls depend; 
In compassion now descend, 
Fill our hearts with Thy rich grace, 
Tune our lips to sing Thy praise. 

3. In Thine own appointed way 
Now we seek Thee, here we stay. 
Lord, we know not how to go 
Till a blessing Thou bestow. 

4. Send some message from Thy Word 
That may peace and joy afford; 
Let Thy Spirit now impart 
Full salvation to each heart. 

5. Comfort those who weep and mourn, 
Let the time of joy return; 
Those that are cast down lift up, 
Make them strong in faith and hope. 

6. Grant that all may seek and find 
Thee a gracious God and kind. 
Heal the sick, the captive free; 
Let us all rejoice in Thee.
